  1. yum… you made such a wow recipe. I know to make whipped cream so  I am going to make this tomorrow only. I am sure my family will love to eat this  pudding.

  2. I love how light and fluffy these cupcakes are with the pudding mix added in!  It’s my favorite way to make cupcakes and cakes from a mix too!

  3. You had me at lemon. Then again at pudding. Love the simplicity of these sweet little cupcakes. The piped rosette swirl on top is seriously perfect too! 🙂

  4. Question — the lemon cupcakes -/  in the frosting do u make the lemon pie filling  or just put one cup of the contents of the box.  Confused.
