My original plan was to make a dramatic layer cake, but after some deep thought, I decided the best way to feed 60 people dessert was in cupcake form. These lemon ricotta cupcakes are deeply inspired by two recipes already on my blog: My Perfect One-Bowl Vanilla Cupcakes with Vanilla Buttercream Frosting & these Light and Lovely Lemon Cupcakes.

As I was deciding what special dessert I should bring to the occasion, I was thinking about how much I’ve been enjoying the summer weather now that it’s finally here. My husband, the boys and I have been really enjoying our walks around our neighborhood and catching up with our neighbors. We’ve all been hibernating with the extreme cold winter we’ve had and it’s nice to see everyone out and about.
To celebrate the beautiful weather, I decided to make something using flavors that symbolize summer.
