I love the color yellow. Bright and cheery like the warm sun on a summer day. So it's no surprise that I also like lemonade, lemon drops, lemon meringue pie, lemon bars....you get the idea.
So when I came across these lemon cupcakes on the sale rack at the grocery store (I'm also a sucker for a good sale), I did not hesitate to snatch them up.
They were a bit plain looking, so I grabbed a carton of raspberries to add a splash of color, and extra fruity flavor to them. I wasn't disappointed with my decision.
The little pop of red from the berries, and the extra flavor they added to these luscious lemon beauties were exactly what they needed. I rationed them, storing them in the frig to keep the creamy lemon frosting and juicy berries preserved for a bit, allowing myself a daily indulgence for four days. Total YUM!!
