Perfect Cupcakes

These cupcakes are fun for all the sweet girls in your life. The inside has a cute confetti cake and the outside a sweet and shiny pink frosting. They are surly fit for any princess. I love the sugar and lemon frosting seeing how the lemon makes it not to sweet and a perfect fit on a cupcake. Make sure to cool your cupcakes completely before adding the frosting. It does not take much with these. I added a small editable silver bead in the middle of mine. These cuties were made for my sister in law so I was not able to show you how they look on the inside. And as for the picture my husband was rushing me. He just does not get my love for a good blog picture, lol.

1 stick unsalted butter, at room temperature
6 tablespoons sugar
2 eggs
1 cup self-rising flour
1/4 cup sprinkles

juice of 1 lemon
1-1/4 cup powdered sugar
red food coloring

1. Preheat over to 350F. In a large bowl add sugar and butter, beat together until fluffy. Add eggs, flour and sprinkles, mix together. Line a muffin pan with cupcake papers. Fill each cup with a heaping teaspoon full. Bake until golden and toothpick comes out clean. 10-15 minutes. Allow to cool.

2. In a medium sized bowl add 2 teaspoons of lemon juice. Sift powdered sugar into bowl, mix. Add more lemon juice if needed. Add one small drop of food coloring and mix well.

Yields: 1 dozen
