Lemon cupcake with Vanilla frosting

After a long break, Im back to blogging...with a very sweet recipe. Is there anyone in the world who don't like cupcakes. Although so many varieties of cakes are there, the basic and easy cupcake is none other than this lemon cup cake with 100% output. I left all my recipe books at my hometown but yet one book came to the rescue of my passion of blogging and baking. And that book is "100 everyday baking recipes" which my husband bought  from a book fair in his office. This book has 100 recipes with pictures written in a very perfect way.( And  the best gift for me is always a book).I love to bake very often and the sweet aroma (at perfect timing :) ) from the oven which tells  " YOUR CAKE IS READY " is awesome.
