The Cake Slice Bakers Present.....Lemon Poppyseed Cake!

This month's cake is from the cookbook, Sky High: Irresistible Triple Layer Cakes by Alisa Huntsman. I opted to make the cake into cupcakes because I had promised a friend some cupcakes, so I killed two birds with one stone.

They are a light cupcake with a hint of lemon flavor, and crunch of poppyseeds. The frosting is an almond cream cheese buttercream. I thought that the frosting was delicious, but overpowered the cupcake....I really couldn't taste any lemon.

Verdict - I will definitely make these again, but next time will use more lemon in the cupcake and less almond in the frosting....


  1. lovely looking cupcakes! yes, that was a lot of almond extract...i cut it a bit as well.

  2. Your cupcakes look wonderful. I agree I would ahve liked more lemon flavour but I loved the frosting too. Bet your friend was delighted with them

  3. I am so sad I didnt get to bake this months cake! Your cupcakes turned out adorable!

  4. Cupcakes for a friend- I bet she loves you! Definitely try some zest in the frosting next time and forgo the almond- they were quite delicious that way.
