Yummy lemon cupcakes with lemony buttercream frosting!

Thought I should post a picture of two of the lemon cupcakes I made for Scott’s birthday yesterday.  Here they are!

I topped each with a lemon-flavoured butter cream icing complete with fresh lemon zest, then added a fresh raspberry on top for a splash of colour.

Here’s the recipe for butter cream icing:

1 lb icing sugar
1/2 lb unsalted butter
1 tsp Vanilla extract
about 1/6 cup of milk

This can be doubled, frozen for up to one month if you wish!

Using a mixer and a flat paddle, mix together until well blended.  I squeezed in about 1 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice and zested about 1/2 of the lemon.  If you are using lemon juice cut the vanilla in half.  Makes for a nice lemony-flavoured butter cream.

Yum.  ‘Nuff said!

Happy noshing!
