Limoncello Cupcakes from Cake Mix

Limoncello cupcakes from cake mix - because I love the taste of Italian lemon liqueur and was looking for the perfect summer bridal shower dessert. I wanted something sweet I could put together quick since one of my other most requested dishes (broccoli salad with raisins, sweet onions, shredded cheese, bacon and a mayonnaise-sugar-vinegar dressing) require attention in the kitchen from nine to around noon. I found this easy limoncello cupcake recipe at Betty Crocker using a SuperMoist white cake mix and just four more ingredients, including water. Homemade limoncello frosting is made in minutes with a light a simple combination of butter, powdered sugar, cream cheese and lemon liqueur.
