Expert Tips

Use decorative cupcake liners to make your cupcakes even prettier. Garnish with a few blueberries, raspberries or thin slices of strawberries.

To save time, use a container of prepared fluffy frosting in place of the frosting in the recipe. You can stir in a teaspoon of grated lemon peel for lemon flavor.
