Lemon-Raspberry Cupcakes

Lemon-Raspberry Cupcakes

With summer coming to an end, I decided to bake something to remind me of the hot days- what could be more summery than raspberry lemonade? These little minis were such a hit at my work bake-sale. People bought them two for a dollar!

I went the easy way and bought a lemon cake mix- whipped these up and baked them according to to the box.  I watched them a little closer making sure not to over bake since they are minis.
I found some cute cupcake liners with little lemons on the bottom of them.  They were on sale which made them even better!


The icing recipe was a buttercream that I added a few drops of red food coloring and a teaspoon of Raspberry Extract instead of vanilla.

 I didn’t have a pastry bag so I used a Ziploc and cut off a corner…this made a big mess.  This works in a pinch, but next time I will make sure I have a pastry bag handy. 

These little yummies were so fun to decorate.
Aren’t they so cute?

 Here they are all dressed up!
   The fresh raspberry on top really added a nice pop of flavor.
