The Virgo Cupcake: Simple lemon rosemary recipe with lemon glaze

Happy Hump Day! I’ve already done two zodiac-themed cupcake posts (Gemini and Leo) and today is all about Virgo, which is also my star sign! Also, another tribute to my blog’s name, The Virgo Violet!

I find Virgos to be maybe the most understood of the 12 signs—we’ve certainly got the worst rep in terms of being nit-picky and overly black-and-white on how things should be done.

For sure, Virgos are the ultimate perfectionist. Not necessarily ‘anal’, but just that presentation and the way things are say a lot about a person. Personally, when I bake or cook anything, the whole process has to go perfectly, and it has to look great, simply because the end result is the only thing everyone’s going to see.

Virgos are also known to be analytical and skeptical; they are great problem spotters and solvers because they see the detail. If you’ve got a problem, go to a Virgo for advice because they’re helpful and good at finding a solution. Unfortunately, this also means they can be critical of both themselves and others when they see the bad since it doesn’t fit into the bigger picture. They mean well, though, no matter how inflexible and interfering they come across!

With all this, they can be introverted—definitely not the kind that like being centre of attention! That’s why I decided on a herb/citrus infusion, and landed on lemon and rosemary! Definitely delicious—I used this recipe from Kitchen Aid. The glaze—which uses both lemon juice and zest–is by Martha Stewart, which you can find here!

The flavours are so subtle and fragrant, kind of like Virgo’s tendency to appear reserved—nothing special—but underneath are a bundle of misunderstood emotions and warmth. And, no, I’m not jut tooting my own horn as a Virgo!

Stay tuned for upcoming blog posts—Libra’s next!
