This cupcake recipe was nice but were not light and airy enough. I have been making cupcakes for a long time now and this could have been a little better. As for the lemon taste it was very faint so I added a tablespoon of lemon juice to the frosting to give it more zing and that worked out much better!! Used some green desert food coloring and had some with strawberries and others with a lemon kiwi strawberry version. Maybe next time I will add a little more milk.

I wanted more lemon in this so I added lemon juice and lemon zest. But then I accidentally dumped in way more coconut than called for . . .so ended up with much more coconut-y cupcakes than planned. Guess that's what happens when I use the bag to measure instead of a cup. Oh, well. Took them to work and they were gobbled up. I didn't make the frosting--have frosting I was trying to get rid of, but the cupcakes were decent with the added lemon. I may try these again without so much coconut, but they still were pretty good. Thanks for the recipe!

I only rated this a 3 star recipe. The cupcakes were nice and light, but I made these because of the "lemon". My family likes lemon anything and these did not have much of a lemon taste. Trying to figure out how to make these with more lemon flavor. Perhaps some lemon juice in the batter AND the frosting.

I didn't change a thing in the recipe. The cupcakes were delicious! Perfectly moist and fluffy. I didn't have the ingredients to do the icing but it sounds wonderful.

People at work raved about how light and delish these are and enjoyed the icing...turned out moist, light and tasty! Easy to make.
