Lemon Cupcakes

lemon cupcakes

Fall gets me thinking about baking.  And when I think about baking lately, it’s all about cupcakes!  These lemon cupcakes have a generous dollop of vanilla cream cheese frosting on top rather than the usual lemon frosting.

For people who think buttercream icing is “too sweet”, there are a couple of things you can do to cut down on the sweetness.  My favorite trick to cutting the sweetness in buttercream icing is to add a pinch of salt.  Trust me, it won’t taste salty, but will cut the sweetness a bit so you can enjoy the creamy icing on top of the cupcake.  The other way to cut sweetness is to make a cream cheese frosting.  Cream cheese frosting is wonderful on all types of cakes and cupcakes, not just carrot cake or red velvet, and it was delicious on these lemon cupcakes.
