      The cupcakes and frosting taste fantastic when done correctly! Fresh zest really gives them a nice kick! Unfortunately, the frosting does not hold a shape well, it looks almost poured on, even with being in the fridge and adding more powdered sugar. Maybe I didn't add enough, but I think the taste is going to compensate for presentation. They are cute!
