Mini Raspberry and Lemon Cupcakes – Recipe

We often have people over in the evenings and I am always looking for the ideal little treat to prepare.  After a little experimentation I came up with this recipe for mini cupcakes.  The kids love them and I have had many a compliment from guests as well.  They are also delicious if you replace the raspberry with blueberries.
