A while ago I posted a question on Sweet Lavender Bake Shoppe's Facebook page asking "What's your favorite cupcake combination?" We got A LOT of really fun ideas- many that we decided we would like to actually create for our fans!
One idea that got my interest right away was a "lemon or chocolate with cream cheese frosting". I couldn't resist that one. What a great idea! There's something about lemons that kind of just reminds me of spring and summer- and just sort of brightens up things. SO we played on that idea and gave it our own little Sweet Lavender twist!
I stuck with a delicious and moist light vanilla cake and topped it with a cheesecake-like, fluffy lemon frosting. I use only the freshest and organic lemons in my frosting as both juice and zest to get the most flavor.
