Mother's Day Cupcakes

Check me out at Happy to be at Home. I have some really useful information about caring for elderly parents :-)

Here, it's time for Tackle It Tuesday with 5 Minutes for Mom and this weekend I tackled cupcakes for my mom.

Most people give cards to show love and gratitude. Me? I give desserts and Mom knows it. So, when I asked what she wanted for Mother's Day and her birthday, she said my lemon cupcakes. (Well, they aren't totally mine. They are semi-homemade.)


It's a box of lemon cake topped with canned lemon frosting topped with a fresh strawberry and powdered sugar. The tartness of the strawberry pairs well with the lemon and the sweetness of the garnish cuts through the pucker nicely. She loved them!
