Lemony-Raspberry Cupcakes with Raspberry Buttercream Frosting


Happy Wednesday Everyone! 




In the previous post, I shared with you my vision for my son's first birthday party. I have been away from the computer for a very valid reason, I have been baking my little heart out in an effort to create the perfect cupcake display and the most delicious, easy to prepare and super cute cupcakes for my son and his guests! 

This recipe for Lemon-Raspberry Cupcakes was just too tempting to pass up! I decided to give the recipe a try and it is amazing! I was really proud of myself for baking these with such ease and the butter cream frosting was fun and easy also. My goal is to bake the cupcakes twice before the big day and really work on the buttercream frosting so that it looks professional.

Since I know I will be making these cupcakes (after the family tasted and approved them) for the party, I decided to just do a lemony cupcake and simply omit the raspberry jam in the cupcake and still go with with the raspberry buttercream (colored blue since I have a little guy) simply for the sake of time while preparing the mini cupcakes. If you like tangy and sweet treats, this recipe is a must! 


I have been trying for over two months now to paint a dresser and show you all my updated formal living and dining room to no avail - the weather simply will not cooperate with me, I do hope to share a couple other quick projects with you all really soon!


Have a great day!
