Mini Lemon Cupcakes with Sweet Tea Frosting

Today is the specialest Monday I’ve had in a long time.
(Is specialest a word? I mean, I know special-IST is a word, but what about special-EST?? The squiggly red line says no, but who even listens to that old thing?)
I got to know Christina about a year ago through her site. I remember that she was struggling with the idea of marriage at the time, and I left her a comment with my two cents (I’m good at giving my two cents…usually I’ll even give you four), and she sent me the sweetest email back. I liked Christina immediately and really hope to meet her in person some day.
Because my comment about marriage is how we got to know each other, I’ll give her my two cents again today :
Marriage is hard. SUPER hard. Some days you love your husband so much, you are overwhelmed with gratefulness. And some days, just looking at him makes you want to punch something.
But don’t do that, it’s really mean and illegal.
But like anything difficult in life, it’s totally worth it. Because what your husband is, is FAMILY.
Marriage is not always romantic and sometimes it resembles work more than the fun you remember. But one day you’ll look at your husband and realize that his life and yours are so intertwined, you’d feel like you were missing a limb if anything ever happened to him. He will see you at your worst and your best, live through your happiest and saddest moments with you, and love you until the end of time. I have no doubt that the two of you will have a wonderful marriage, and I am SO SO happy for the two of you!!
Now for dessert — I made cupcakes!!
Because Christina is from the South, I knew I had to work Sweet Tea into her shower cupcakes. Sweet Tea is basically required drinking down here in Arkansas, and I’m sure it’s no different in Texas.
Since this is for a shower, I made the cupcakes mini, but you could make these full sized too. The frosting is really easy and has a really great sweet tea flavor.
I know that Sweet Tea Frosting might sound weird, but just trust me.
Happy Wedding Shower Day, Christina!! I hope you love your cupcakes!!
