Lemon Cloud Cupcakes - Lady Behind The CurtainTHIS CUPCAKE REMINDS ME OF SUMMER!

Serve these lemon cloud cupcakes as a mini cupcake, regular size cupcake or a cake.  These lemon cloud cupcakes also great with just the glaze and no frosting. One of my families favorites.  Using a cake mix and adding pudding to it makes this cake very moist and easy to make.
