To me, lemon and raspberry go together like peanut butter and jelly. The subtle sweet taste of raspberry pairs brilliantly with the tangy taste of lemon, creating a mouthwatering flavor combination that is irresistible. Sweet raspberry frosting balances the deliciously tart flavor of this lemon cupcake perfectly. Garnish with a bit of fresh fruit and you have a gourmet cupcake your family will love.
