Strawberry Lemonade Cupcakes

“I want to make strawberry lemonade cupcakes”

“Strawberry lemon…ade? That’s an awfully long name, why can’t they be strawberry lemon cupcakes?”

Since I went and bought cupcake liners, I decided I had to bake cupcakes one more time before I move out and before finals really start. So I used the cupcake recipe from Love and Olive Oil and the Buttercream from How Sweet Eats with a few tweaks of course. So I ended up making lemon cupcakes with a strawberry-lemon buttercream frosting. The cupcakes were not very lemony – just a very slight hint so feel free to add more lemon juice!

I used this recipe from Vanilla Garlic with very very slight modifications.
