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
