I ‘whipped up’ these cupcakes because someone that I worked with asked me if I could create a ‘healthy’ version of lemon drop cupcakes. Traditional lemon drop cupcakes are nothing more that just a lemon cupcake, with a lemon cream filling! My mind began turning, thinking about how I was going to create a light and lemony treat…And I instantly thought back to my Sweetheart Cupcakes! It was then that I knew that a lemon-lime soda would be ‘in-the-mix’ of my next recipe creation!
Lemon just screams spring/summer to me…And I find it to be quite refreshing after a winter full of ’comfort food’ and filling desserts! I ended up bringing some of these cupcakes into work the other day, and the nurses that I work with told me that they were thrilled at how flavorful these cupcakes were! I can promise that you that you (and whoever you serve them to) will be delighted with the light and lemony sweetness of these lemon drop cupcakes as well!
