Lemon Extreme Cupcakes

You’re not sure where Beast is going.  It takes some interesting and harsh twists and turns.  The movie begins with Moll’s birthday, so a cupcake is the perfect choice.  When developing a lemon cupcake recipe, I kept hearing “not lemony enough”.  This recipe is as lemony as it gets.  I prefer the mini cupcakes because each one is a perfect bite.
