      I was in a huge hurry to make some lemon cupcakes. I'm so happy I picked this recipe!!! YUMMY!!! I didn't have any lemonade concentrate so I used Limeade concentrate. I put a squeeze of fresh lime & Lemon juice plus zest in cupcakes. So moist and wonderful. I also doubled the frosting, MMMMMMM goood. Thanks so much for this recipe. :D

      OMG!!!.... I made this recipe two days ago for a party, and the very same day they were gone!!! LOL. I had to make more.
      I made it a little bit different because I couldn't find the frozen lemonade nor the white cake mix; so, instead of the white cake mix, I used Lemon cake mix, and instead the frozen lemonade, I used 2 scoops of Lipton Lemon Iced Tea with 6 oz of water. EVERYONE LOVED THEM!!!!! I will keep using the recipe. mmmmmm

      My baby shower co-host made these cupcakes (but just the cake; she used plain cream cheese frosting after finding this frosting too sweet), and they were moist, delicious and lemony.
