Loved the cupcake recipe, but the frosty was so runny! It tasted great but sure didn't look like the picture. Go buy frosting, that worked out much better the second time.
The lemon frosting with these cupcakes was to die for. Make sure you take them to a potluck, cause they are BAD to have around the house. You will eat them all!! :)
Best cupcakes ever, and the frosting is delicious...had some leftover and I´ve put on other cupcakes as well, even on cookies the frosting is great. Cupcakes came out beautiful as well.
These cupcakes were delicious! I ended up doing store-bought Creamy Lemon frosting because it sounded like the recipe frosting would be runny if not refrigerated (which these wouldn't have been). I'd love to make them again and give the cream-cheese lemon frosting a try. The cupcakes themselves were great and with the store bought lemon frosting - so yummy!
These were delicious! Because the icing recipe makes so much, I used a cream cheese frosting for both this cupcake recipe and a red velvet; there was enough for both batches plus some extra. You can make a basic icing batch, then divide it and add your flavorings--lemon for this recipe, vanilla for others, etc... The cupcakes made according to this recipe were moist and light, and I especially loved them just a bit chilled.
When made as directed the frosting was really runny. You need you use alot more powdered sugar in order for it to come out like the picture.
Wow. These were awesome! And, the icing stayed nice and soft even when refrigerated. Adding the lemon zest makes this cupcake even more yummy!!!
I added the zest of one lemon to the frosting and one zest of lemon to the cake batter to give it more lemon flavor. I also added a little yello food coloring to the cake batter to appear more lemony.
The cupcakes were very refreshing! I was not sure about the icing when I tasted it by itself but it totally worked with the cupcakes and they were amazing!!
Great recipe! Easy to whip up for a last minute dessert. Great for summer picnics!
