    Everyone loved these!! I doubled the lemon zest and only used 3 cups of powdered sugar for the frosting. I made mini cupcakes so I didn’t fill with any lemon curd. I only used half of the frosting, so I just made another batch of cupcakes. Yum yum yum!

    Very good! The frosting looks top-notch! On other cupcake recipes I have tried, the frosting is never as good as it looks. Its good for birthday parties and other fun activities. I defiantly recommend this to people craving something sweet.
