Lemon Cupcakes!

These were sooo good. Light and fluffy, a little sticky and super lemon fresh! The texture was almost like angel food cake but still had a little more everyday cake to it. Not sure if that made any sense, but they were yummy. Next time I will do it as the recipe said and not use wrappers, but since I was bringing these to a BBQ I figured it would be easier to have the paper on them. Oh and the glaze was optional, but I highly recommend it as it really kicked up the lemon zing! Recipe from Cupcakes! By Elinor Klivans. The pumpkin spice ones are also super good from this book.

Would you like fries with that? These thin and crispy sugar cookies were pretty yummy I must say. And you don’t have to have a lot to get a taste and satisfy the sweet tooth.

I snagged the little ketchup cups from Burger King, but the rest of the paper cuteness was printed and cut by me.
