Simple Lemon Cupcakes With Vanilla Frosting

Who doesn’t love cupcakes.  They are super simple to make and when made correctly can be really yummy.  I don’t make cupcakes often and when I do I normally make massive batches as I normally allow for friends and family – because that’s the kind of person I am.  That might account for why we…
