Banana Cupcakes

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2011
This recipe is definitely for cupcakes, not muffins. I used butter instead of shortening, and they tasted perfectly fine. I do suggest using 1 1/4 cups of sugar, because the second time I made these, I used that amount and they were just as sweet as the first time I made them with 1 1/2 cups. They are not as sweet as regular cupcakes, but then I think the bananas also add some sweetness. I will definitely make these again, and I highly recommend them.

Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2011
This recipe was very, very good, but extremely sweet. I'm a huge icing fan, so sometimes I taste it after I've made it to see if it needs anything. And this was way too sweet to eat alone. I only put in 2 cups of sugar, and it was still unbelievably sweet. It was good on cupcakes however. It didn't spread that well either.

Lemon Orange Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2011
This cake was absolutely fabulous! I loved the orange frosting--the lemon gave it a nice kick. The only thing, I would say, is that the cake and frosting eaten together is very, very sweet. Other than that, this cake was a hit!
