Tomorrow is the first day of spring! 🌷 🏵 🌺

I can’t wait for the winter to be over. We’ve been really lucky when it comes to the snow, but, it’s just been really cold and windy this winter.

How about you? How has the winter been in your area this year?

To kick off springtime, we have cupcakes made with my favorite springtime flavor: lemon 🍋 😋

These cupcakes not only have fresh lemon, but,are frosted with a creamy, sweet frosting made with real, fresh strawberries. They are the perfect flavor combo for spring and taste amazing!

Hi Susan- I'm sure it would work out ok, but, I've never made this batter into a cake, so, I can't say for sure in regards to pan size, baking time, etc. It you do give it a try, please let me know! Enjoy :)
