Easter Lemon Cupcakes

I hope you had a happy Easter weekend! Ours was so lovely.
Just simple, and beautiful and wonderful.
We spent yesterday in the sunshine hanging out with family, eating great food & drinking good wine, and being entertained by Lily :)


Hunter's mom made delicious grilled portobello mushrooms and his sis made baked tomatoes with spices, olive oil and cheese ( I even got some special ones with rice cheese) that were fabulous!
For dessert we had lemon blueberry cupcakes. Not these lemon blueberry cupcakes because unfortunately I tried to ad lib my frosting and it melted all over the place.
This picture is from the last time I made them :)
Don't worry, they still tasted d-lish yesterday... and I'm a firm believer that taste trumps looks when it comes to dessert. Always.
