Still looking for the ultimate lemon cupcake

Have tried two different lemon cupcakes recipes. However, still searching for the ultimate soft and zesty cupcake.

It was definitely moist and flavour profile was good. However, found that the first batch collapsed . Added some baking soda – second batch was better – but both were peeling away from the cupcakes. Not sure what went wrong  – maybe it also had to do with the crazy hot humid day  -not conducive to baking

Putting the cream cheese – made the cupcakes very heavy and dense.  They were ok – the lemon curd was good.
