Lemon Cupcakes

Lemon desserts are for me what chocolate desserts are for chocoholics. These are mildly rather than aggressively lemony. I figure 7/8 cup flour by filling a 1 cup measure, then removing 2 tablespoons. 1 Tbs grated lemon zest is approximately one lemon's worth of peel. By the way, the frosting is also good on carrot cake.
