My grandkids loved these, as did my lemon-loving neighbor. I did, however, add an extra tablespoon of lemon zest. Will make these again for my grandkids' school parties. Might give this a try with blueberries. YUM!

I substituted seedless raspberry jam and put a raspberry on top. They were the hit of the tea party where I served them.
These are so cute and I love anything that I can use a cake mix with. Also happened to have 1/2 a jar of lemon curd that was dying to get used. What a great recipe and a great Bake Sale item.
Made these for a bake sale and put them in plastic cups in a baggie tied with pretty ribbon (as shown in TOH magazine). Decorated the tops with a strawberry "fan" and tinted the frosting with a pink cake decorator color as the jelly/jam did not yield the desired color. I also would have added a lemon flavoring to the cupcake as they weren't as "lemony" as I thought they would be. In colored cupcake liners with strawberry fans, and colored ribbon, they did make for an attractive sell.
