Love cupcakes? Love lemon? You’ll love these easy lemonade cupcakes!

With summer just around the corner, lemon is my go to dessert flavor. And these light and creamy lemon cupcakes dressed up to look like a sip of sunshine are a fun and creative way to celebrate!

What you’ll need:

  • Duncan Hines Lemon Supreme Cake Mix
  • Duncan Hines Creamy Lemon Supreme Icing
  • Fresh lemon juice (to flavor… I like to squeeze in a whole medium size lemon)
  • White cupcake liners
  • White and yellow paper straws (cut in 1/3)
  • Optional: replace oil with apple sauce

Instructions:

  • Prepare batter and bake cupcakes as instructed at 350.
  • Allow to cool for 20 minutes.
  • Spoon icing into a resealable plastic bag, snip an “X” into one corner and pipe the icing in a swirling motion.
  • To garnish, set iced cupcake into a second (slightly stretched out) paper liner and insert a paper straw

Do your kiddos like to have a lemonade stand in the summer? My boys always try it at least once when all the neighbors are out on a busy Saturday afternoon. Well, these cupcakes will surely be the star of the stand!

As always, I hope you’re inspired to craft, bake, create and celebrate!

    You mention in ingredients the juice of 1 whole medium lemon. Can you tell me where you mix the juice~~into the cake mix or the frosting? Thanks. I LOVE anything lemon.

      Nancy – sorry about that! Good catch. I’ll correct it in the recipe. As for where I added it, in the batter. I would recommend maybe starting with half a lemon. I like it a bit strong, but the mix alone is a light yummy hint of lemon. A half lemon would be a good start and then for serious lemon (tart) lovers the one medium. :)

      Thanks for stopping in!
