Ok, I found this recipe in a Kraft Food and Family magazine and I had to share it. OMG!!! These cupcakes are to die for!!! If you love lemon, which I am a HUGE fan of lemon, you will LOVE them! And, sooooooooooo easy! I took them to my Stampin Up club last night and they were a huge hit! Great for the holiday season coming up too!
