Glazed Lemon Cupcake Buds


Anything Glazed. Anything Lemon. Anything Cake. My Taste Buds go crazy for. After the Lemon Raspberry bread gone wrong, I decided to go small, mini Lemon Cake Buds. And when you are small, you need extra glaze! Plus, this recipe is so easy to bake up. The bad thing is that they are small, so I end up eating 12 of them not realizing I just ate 12 mini muffins with extra glaze!

So be careful. Make these when you expect people to come over or bring them to a party. Do not make them for no occasion. You will eat them all in one sitting. I promise you that!

Delicious Rating: These are delicious without the glaze. I kept popping the little lemon suckers into my mouth as they were cooling. You can take the lemon cake bud and dip it into the glaze for a nice coating or just drizzle with a spoon. I will definitely be making this easy recipe again, for a nice spring afternoon!
