These lemonade cupcakes are great fun for children’s parties. They have a refreshing lemon flavor with a tangy, citrus kick from the lemonade. You can almost feel the tingling of the bubbles when you eat them! A buttery sponge with a sweet twist makes these cupcakes moreish and delicious. You could even top these cupcakes with grated lemon zest for an extra kick!
