Is this a giant cupcake or lemon lime meringue pie

We went to a Potluck dinner last night and I provided dessert

this was a lemon lime meringue pie , but when it was sitting on the stove after the meringue was cooked it looked like a giant cupcake .

I also made coffee profiteroles, and tuttifruitti vanilla kisses. I was so pleased with my choux paste it came out absolutly perfect in texture , evenly cooked and beautiful . The kisses were a tutti fruitti cookie with a rich vanilla buttercream in the middle, the flavour combo was really gorgous
