lemon-raspberry cupcakes...

bake with love...

After my first cupcakes that I made a while ago, I wanted to make more cupcakes sometimes soon. Fortunately, I got a Bon Appetit magazine 2 days ago and had my eyes on this recipe.

Just yesterday, Mark happened to have some guts making somethings for me. So I asked him if he could make me these cupcakes.

I made these the day I got my magazine, too. You're right - they're a beautifully flavoured cupcake. I made the icing called for on the recipe, and it was also delicious.

The icing for the recipe is great, but my husband didn't have fresh raspberry at that time. So he decided to made standard icing instead. :)
