Lemon cupcakes are a delightful mix of sweet and subtle tartness in a dense, moist cake topped with a light and fluffy lemon whipped cream frosting.
Lemon completely takes over a vanilla cupcake so that every bite is full of zesty lemon flavor that lingers on in your mouth even after the last bite is eaten!
The cupcake batter is infused not only with lemon zest but upon baking holes are punched over the top and a sticky-sweet lemon syrup is brushed over them.
The same lemon syrup is used to flavor the whipped cream frosting that melts like a light, lemony cloud on your tongue.
To me nothing says spring more than fresh fruit! Lemon is like golden sunshine with its bright, fresh flavor and sunny disposition.
I can’t think of a better way to usher in spring than by biting into lemon-flavored sunshine!
