The Cupcake Project: Lemon Lime Cupcakes Homemade Cupcake Recipe
Guess what? We’re up to week 7 of The Cupcake Project! Crazy, right? I know you’ve been following me this past month and kept up while I bake my way through the amazeballs cookbook, Your Cup of Cake. 1 new homemade cupcake recipe a week. You have right? I bought this gorgeous book written by Lizzy Early at Sam’s Club and made a sort of baking challenge for myself. It’s a tough job, but someone’s got to do it. Your welcome. I let Ethan go through the book and pick out which homemade cupcake recipe he wanted me to make for this week. Kinda impressed he picked these Lemon Lime Cupcakes! They are moist, perfectly sweet and tart. Everything that screams fresh and clean, full of citrus flavors perfect for the season! I hate that fake ‘lemon lime’ sickly sweet flavor you get with candies and cakes and stuff, ya know? These homemade cupcakes use real lemon lime flavors from fresh fruit, their juice and the zest as well. They were way too easy to keep popping in my mouth. WAY… Next time, I may switch it up, I found a recipe from The Tartlette and she uses meringue on top rather than Lemon Buttercream or Cream Cheese Frosting… Kind of made my mouth water. Ok, let’s do this! Ready to get your bake on with me?
Lemon Lime Cupcakes
So, kinda sweet, tart and citrus-y awesome, right? For those of you who may be new to The Cupcake Project, and just stumbled into these Lemon Lime Cupcakes, here’s all 5 weeks up to now:
Week 1, we made these Chocolate Malt Homemade Cupcakes! Just like an old fashioned soda fountain drink. My dad’s favorite!
Week 2, we whipped up some Orange Creamsicle Cupcakes. Remember those creamy bars you got from the Ice Cream man?? THAT!!
For Week 3, we made Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes! All the fun that comes with Summer, but no melty mess! And, they are super cute for Summer BBQ’s and parties. HUGE hit with the kiddies!
Week 4 we made THE prettiest homemade cupcakes ever. Really… Strawberry Pink Lemonade Cupcakes are DA BOMB!
Week 5 fell on the 4th of July, so naturally we threw down some 4th of July Cupcakes.
Week 6 I made these Uh.Maze.Ing White Chocolate and Blackberry Cupcakes. Oh.My.Lanta! Just go check out the photo and tell me you don’t want to make them! Gorgeous!
So, are you a sweet and tart lover? Will you tell me how these Lemon Lime Cupcakes turn out if you bake them up?
