    I made these tonight and by the time the cupcakes were done they were starting to burn on the bottom. They wouldn't come out of the paper at all! When pulling the paper off it completely tore up the cupcakes. Any suggestions?

    I cannot find frozen lemonade concentrate in stores near me! Anyone ever try this with pulpy bottled lemonade?

    I made this with pink lemonade and baked it as a cake in a 9x13 cake pan. I added the two tablespoons of lemonade to the canned frosting, which made it a little runny, but very delicious. My family absolutely loved this cake and I'm lucky to get a second slice! Thanks, Angela, for great summery treat!

    These cupcakes are really good!! Thanks for the recipe. I used a raspberry buttercream for the frosting and it was excellent! I will make these again.

    These are too good! Made a batch of these for my daughters 1st birthday and half of them didn't make it to the party because my husband and I couldn't keep our hands off of them! <br/>We used pink lemonade instead of regular... we also made mini cupcakes instead of the normal size... the mini's were done in about 16-18 min and the recipe made 48 mini's and 7 regular's... <br/>I will be making these again! Yummmmmm!<br/>Thanks!

    The cake part of these are excellent, but next time I make these I will make a different frosting. The cream cheese frosting is not a good mix, it needs something more with a bite to it.

    these cupcakes are divine! i used non-fat plain yogurt instead of sour cream and they are excellent! I plan on making limeade, orange, and lemonade for my baby shower. I did a simple powdered sugar & water icing and put a small sliver of lemon on top. I plan to do key limes, and mandarin oranges on the others. thanks for a great recipe!
