Lemon Honey Cupcakes



Last Thursday was my husband’s birthday…..


…he’s not big on birthday cakes….all he asked for were…..
CUPCAKES….made by little old me…..of course.



I made him many different cupcakes over the years so it was time to change it up……..bake Something new…..Something tasty…….Something sweet.


I found¬† recipe for LEMON HONEY CUPCAKES in one of my magazines….first I was impressed with the look….then I read the recipe and I was sold…..I found the PERFECT CUPCAKE for my hubby.


I did little bit of my own adaptation to the original Lemon Honey Cupcakes before sharing the recipe with you.
