ABOUT Easy, Moist and Soft Lemon Cupcakes RECIPE

I wanted to bake something which I never did and so I ended up picking these tangy lemon cupcakes. These cupcakes I had made for Diwali mela in school and they were a big hit !! Thinking about them, I baked again. This would have been better with lemon glaze but since for home baking, I won’t use much sugar, I ended up decorating the cupcakes with sprinkles, which were looking very cute and attractive.
