Lemon & Orange Summer Cupcakes

Hi there!

How are things going?

Last weekend it was a warm one. The sun shined almost the whole day and lots of people went to the park for a picnic. Some friends told me to go out last Saturday morning to enjoy this wonderful day, but I was eager to bake some refreshing recipes, and that was the perfect time!! 

Lemon and Orange Summer Cupcakes

I took some lemons and oranges from the fridge and I started to make the most refreshing cupcakes I’ve ever made!! They were not too sweet and had a slightly citric flavour: perfect to cope with that baking hot!
