PREP. Preheat oven to 350.
BATTER. In a medium bowl combine cake mix, pudding mix, eggs and oil and beat until smooth.
BAKE. Spray mini muffin pan and fill each tin half way (NOTE: Batter should be pretty thick). Bake for 12 minutes.
GLAZE. To make glaze beat together powdered sugar, lemon juice and milk. Add more milk if you’d like a thinner consistency. While muffins are still warm, dip cupcake tops into the glaze and set on wax paper. Let set completely before storing.
Tips + Storing Info
Do not make the cake or pudding using the directions on the box. You are only using the dry mix and following the directions in the Lil’ Luna Recipe.
- Pudding: Be sure to buy INSTANT pudding mix. The pudding helps create a creamier dessert and adds a lot of lemony flavor.
- Cake: For an even more lemon flavor you can use a lemon cake mix. White cake mix is another good option.
Adding lemon zest to the frosting will boost the citrusy flavor.
I think that white chocolate and lemon pair well together, so adding a white chocolate drizzle or a few white chocolate chips to the tops would taste great.
STORE at room temperature in a tightly closed container so it doesn’t dry out too much. If they are in an air-tight container they should last about a week. If they seem to be drying out I would suggest storing them in the fridge so that the humidity can give the cake some moisture back. Tossing a piece of white bread into the storage container will also help keep the cakes moist.
FREEZE in a Freezer Ziploc for 1-2 months. I would flash freeze them first so that they don’t stick together.
- Flash freeze: place cooled blossoms on a baking pan. Stick the pan in the freezer and let freeze until the blossoms are solid. Then, transfer them all to a storage container.
