Wow! Did these pack a punch! I frosted lemon cream cupcakes from the guest recipes on this site. I may have went a little overboard on the lemon juice. I tried to adjust the taste and consistency with a little milk and more powdered sugar. What I ended up with was thick and creamy and tart frosting. But hey, I guess that's what I should expect after not having accurately measured out the fresh lemon juice :D The kids went wild over the frosting. I guess they enjoyed the tartness, but it was a little too tangy for my taste. I'll have to cut down on the lemon next time around, but I'll definitely make this again!
