Lemon Meringue Cupcakes

Someone asked me to make them cupcakes that were lemony. I have this weird fear of certain cooking/baking methods and one was to make a meringue. So I decided to suck it up and make these cupcakes. It's the first time I've ever made a plain meringue. I've made swiss meringues and italian meringues but never plain ol meringues. I searched and found this recipe online at http://desertculinary.blogspot.com/ and made a few modifications.
