I made both the cupcakes and the frosting exactly as written. I give the cupcakes a 4. The taste is lovely and lemony, not overly sweet, has a lightness I appreciate. I took off one star because the cupcakes came out flat. I would think it was an error on my part, but I see many, many others had the same result. I give the frosting a 2, but I am not a huge fan of sweet things, so I'm not factoring that in as it may be a matter of personal preference. I love blackberry jam and was looking forward to the combo of berries and lemon, but the frosting just tastes like sickeningly sweet butter with a hint of blackberries. I thought it might just seem overly sweet on its own, so I frosted a cupcake and nearly spit it out, it was so sweet. With doctoring (more jam, some lime juice, and about 3 oz. cream cheese), it wasn't too bad, but I think I'll make the frosting differently in the future. I will definitely be making the cupcakes again!
