Lemon Cupcakes is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made these cupcakes with raspberry filling. I then topped them with the lemon buttercream frosting. They are not sweet & have the right amount of tartness to them to give it the perfect balance. My husband could not stop raving about them. I took a few to work & they wanted to know when I was going to make more. Excellent cupcakes!
