With Springtime weather coming into town recently, I thought it would be a good idea to give my followers something extra sweet to bake! This list is complied of cupcakes that are baked with lemon flavors! To me, lemons are fresh and zesty, which is symbolic of the Spring season! For those of you who enjoy fruity flavors, these cupcakes will be perfect to try over the weekend!

First up are Lemon Lover Cupcakes with Lemon Cream Cheese Icing  from My Baking AddictionThese cupcakes feature a fresh, lemony flavor and they are paired with a sweet cream cheese icing. The combination provides for a mouthwatering taste. The recipe features lemon extract for flavor and if you want to get technical, you can add some yellow food dye for a visually appealing pale yellow color.

Lastly are Strawberry Lemonade Cupcakes from Love and Olive Oil. Strawberry Lemonade is a staple in my home during the warmer months and I can only imagine how wonderful the drink tastes in cupcake form. What makes these cupcakes so enticing is the icing, which is made with fresh strawberries. The cupcakes are filled with the freshness of lemon zest, making the flavor combination fruity and delicious.
