There are many many reasons to make your own cupcakes but here are my top five:

  1. They are easy to make
  2. You can use any flavours
  3. You can get creative and decorate them anyway you want
  4. Just one can satisfy your cake cravings
  5. They are delicious

I love making cupcakes, the whole process of baking and decorating these little treats is totally therapeutic and the perfect thing to do at the end of a stressful day.  Best of all they can be frozen and you can just defrost a few at a time as you need them!

I wasn’t sure if the combination of raspberry and lemon would work but my policy is to have a go (if they don’t work, I have three pet hens who will demolish anything!)  My main rationale for trying this combination was that I had both raspberries and lemons in the house but I have to say they were a triumph, moist, fresh and zingy! I will definitely be making these again.  Give them a try and let me know what you think
