For the vanilla cupcakes:

  1. Preheat an electric oven to 190º C.

  3. Add eggs, vanilla extract and milk. Keep stiring to combine all the ingredients.
  4. Sift the remaining dry ingredients and mix them to get a clump free batter.
  5. Fill your cupcake liners with the vanilla batter; remember to fill them just up to ¾, you need to leave space because they will grow in the oven.
  6. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden on top.

For the lemon frosting:

  1. Combine both butter and cream cheese together in a large bowl until you are left with an even texture.
  2. Start to incorporate the powdered sugar, slowly.
  3. Add the lemon juice, 2 drops of yellow coloring and lemon zest. Give it a last good stir until you get a whipped texture and your lemon frosting is ready!

To assemble:

  1. Your cupcakes need to be room temperature before starting to add the frosting.
  2. Use a pastry bag and a star tip to make a big swirl of lemon frosting on top of your cupcake.
  3. Sprinkle a small amount of lemon zest over the icing
  4. Place your edible image at an angle on each cake.
