Lemon berry cupcakes

Mmmm mmmm good! And pretty, too! I found this cake "doctored" recipe and I couldn't wait to make them.  The recipe made 24 so I took them to a couple of neighbors and we had a ton for us as well.

1 pkg lemon cake mix
1 cup sour cream
3/4 cup oil
3/4 cup water
4 eggs
1 small pkg lemon instant pudding

Mix dry ingredients and add wet ingredients.  Mix with an electric mixer on medium speed for 2 minutes.  The batter will be really thick.   Fill cupcake cups and bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.  Do not over bake or they will be dry. The tops MIGHT fall and you just have to fill with more icing! :)

Lemon Buttercream Frosting
1 cup soft butter
6-8 powdered sugar
1/2 cup lemon juice, fresh
1 tsp grated lemon zest
Put butter in a mixer and add 4 cups of the sugar, then juice and zest and beat until smooth.  Gradually add the remaining sugar 1 cup at a time until icing is thick enough to spread. Ice the cupcakes and garnish with berries! Enjoy~
