I found the recipe on a blog called "Nothing But Country," and I've made a few additions to suit my needs.

Definitely not impressed with the icing BUT absolutely LOVE the cupcakes! So, next time I will either use store bought lemon icing or use a different recipe for homemade icing. Otherwise, a hit with the kids and family.
