Congrats Aunt Julie and clan, and welcome to the world to your new niece and nephew!!

Mmmmmm, lemon. As David Lebovitz would say about me, "I'm one of those lemon people"!! (there's a great post on his blog about lemon people). My brother is a choc.-n-lemon person, much like your brother, so I like the idea of icing some with choc. frosting and some with lemon.

When I was a new mom, I would've much rather had cupcakes, homemade lemon ones especially, than flowers. Good call =)


Congratulations--what joy! Welcome to the wonderful world of auntie-hood, I am sure you will love it. I've been out of town the past few weeks and I can't tell you how much I've missed my two little niece-lets. It's an almost visceral thing. Enjoy, enjoy!

And those cupcakes--yum! Right up my alley.


Congratulations Julie - I think being an aunt is the best job of all! Your cupcakes are beautiful and sound delicious!


Oh, lucky babies. Oh, lucky new parents. Oh, lucky us. Have I mentioned what a grand thing it is to know and love you, and what a generous thing that heart of yours is?


Congratulations, Julie! And, welcome to the club! I am so happy for you. You'll be the best aunt ever, I just know it. Those lucky babies. :)

Did I mention we've got a new addition, again? Another little nephew arrived a couple of months ago. That makes four little boys under the age of six. Heehee, I love spoiling them, but rarely do I want them to go home at the end of the day. I consisder them to be 'my children' only they're once removed because they came from my relatives. Aunts like to think up stuff like this...lol.

My best to you and Geoff and the new mom and dad. I can't wait to see photos.

Love you lots,

Thanks Glenda -- I'm so glad you think cupcakes were the right call! The parents seem to agree.

Bakerina darlin', your sentiments are returned a thousandfold -- truly, truly.

Tea and Cathy and Lea dear -- thanks for welcoming me to the realm of auntie-hood. It's going to be so much fun...

Thanks to both Joes -- the brother/new dad, and the treasured colleague as well. And happy father's day to you both!


I think you may be in line for a title involving "cupcakes" and royalty of some sort. Those look and sound excellent.
New addition here too.Two of my very best friends, who lived with me for 5 years, have been waiting to adopt a baby for ever. They were feeling they should maybe give up, when the agency came through with their beautiful 4 mouth old daughter!

I'm an honorary grandmother, and over the moon. They decided to keep her foster name, "Grace", called "Gracie", because it suits her. And now, their house is generally known as "Graceland".

Gracie is a terribly clever baby.


Hi, I just recently started reading your entries, and I'm loving everything that you've made!! Just wanted to tell you :]

And these cupcakes look sooo good!
And congrats on the new born!

Just wanted to thank you for this recipe ... it has become my new favorite cupcake recipe! For delicious vanilla cupcakes, you can eliminate the lemon zest and add an extra teaspoon of vanilla extract (I use 1 tsp extract and 1 tsp paste). Thank you thank you thank you!!

I made the Lusciously Lemony Icing, but instead of using it on cupcakes I served it with fruit salad and icecream.. It was a total success!!
I is because the Icing is so delicious!!
