OK, how cute are these? The daughter’s of a neighbor of mine are throwing her a surprise birthday tea party today and when I heard that, I remembered that I had these adorable silicone tea cups that you can actually bake a cupcake in so I called and asked if I could bring them to the party. I got them at a store near me called Tai Pan Trading but I checked and you can get them on Amazon and right now they are buy one, get one free!!! I also had those cute flower cupcake liners from Wilton which I figured went nicely with the tea party theme as well. I used my go to Basic Buttercream Icing for the cupcakes but substituted whipping cream for the milk as an experiment which worked out quite nicely being just a little less sweet than with the milk.
1 lemon cake mix plus ingredients to make cake

1 small box lemon pudding or 1 small box vanilla pudding and 1 teaspoon lemon extract

1 Mix (adding extra egg and pudding mix) and bake as directed on package for cupcakes.
2 Frost as desired with Buttercream Icing and sprinkle with lemon sprinkles or yellow decorating sugar.
