Lemon-Limoncello Cupcakes

Lemon-Limoncello Cupcakes

These cupcakes are absolutely superb! There’s nothing like a fresh, lemon tasting dessert of any kind!

I think the limoncello in this recipe gives the cupcake a great and different kind of lemon flavor, definitely like nothing I’ve ever had before. I also really like the lemon curd filling, it’s just delicious to bite into!

It may be more acceptable to love cupcakes than Pop Tarts as a grown up with a day job, but this recipe shakes up that idea and proves we can love and enjoy both…at the same time.

Shirley Temple Cupcakes

Shirley Temple Cupcakes

The sweet, nostalgic, childhood drink, in cupcake form, all topped off with a cherry! Who can resist the bubbly, pink, liquid happiness in a glass? Or as a cupcake?

The cupcake is ultra light and fluffy with 7UP Cherry in the batter, giving it a perfect lemon-lime flavor with a hint of cherry and super airy texture. A splash of the 7UP into the frosting gives it an almost carbonated taste that is perfectly sweet and creamy.

Sweet Tea Vodka Lemonade Cupcakes

Sweet Tea Vodka Lemonade Cupcakes

This recipe is for vanilla cupcakes, just spiked with some sweet tea vodka and iced tea drink powder that gives the cake a great hint of sweet tea without being overwhelming.

The frosting is a remix of this whipped vanilla frosting made with lemonade powder and some fresh lemon juice too.  It’s a fluffy buttercream with the perfect amount of tartness and sweetness, especially if you’re someone who loves lemon.

‘Tis the season for carrot cake, and there are sure to be hundreds of recipes for cupcake versions too, but we like this refreshing twist on an old favorite.

Start with…well…carrot cake, and add a bit of orange zest and juice, top that off with brown sugar buttercream also spiked with orange, and you may find carrot cake can be more appetizing than you previously thought!
