Last summer we were introduced to the Arnold Palmer tea by our summer houseguest. So when I saw the recipe for these cupcakes I knew I would need to make these for his visit. I saw the recipe around the Masters tournament and since we don't watch golf around here I saved it for later. The lemon flavor in these cupcakes is really nice. It is not too tart. I will admit I have never made tea for cupcakes before.
They turned out so pretty. I know it isn't football season but this plate holds a recipe of cupcakes and fits well in my fridge so it always comes out when I make cupcakes.
