1 c homemade lavender simple syrup
1 box cake mix, lemon or butter
lemon juice
rind from on fresh lemon
homemade cream cheese frosting

Prepare the box cake mix, however replace any water with full strengh lemon juice. Add the rind of one lemon, bake according to directions on the box.

Once cupcakes have cooled, add the lavender syrup on top of the cupcakes.

Pipe cream cheese frosting on top

Hint: When making my cream cheese frosting I add lemon rind and lemon juice, even a little of the lavender syrup. It give the extra edge to the cupcakes. I never meet a person who did not like these! These are a WINNER!

I normally make cupcakes using a meyer's lemon cake recipe and making my own lavender syrup however, I was in a pinch and made this one day.
