Prep Time



Total Time






box Betty Crocker® SuperMoist® French vanilla cake mix
Water, vegetable oil and eggs called for on cake mix box
tablespoons grated lemon peel (from 2 medium lemons)
Filling and Frosting
container (6 oz) fresh raspberries (1 to 1 1/4 cups)
containers Betty Crocker® Whipped fluffy white frosting
tablespoons grated lemon peel (from 2 medium lemons)
tablespoon fresh lemon juice
Grated lemon peel strips
  1. Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pans). Place paper baking cup in each of 24 regular-size muffin cups. Make and bake cake mix as directed on box for cupcakes, adding 2 tablespoons lemon peel to batter. Cool in pans 10 minutes; remove from pans to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
  2. Reserve 24 raspberries for garnish; set aside. In small bowl, beat remaining raspberries, 1 cup of the frosting and 2 tablespoons lemon peel with whisk until well blended. Fit 1/4-inch diameter round tip into decorating bag. Spoon raspberry mixture into bag. Insert tip into center of each cupcake, about two-thirds of the way down; gently squeeze bag, pulling upwards until cupcake swells slightly and filling comes to top. (Do not let filling spill out over top of cupcake.)
  3. In small bowl, mix remaining frosting and the lemon juice until smooth and shiny. Pipe or spread frosting on cupcakes. Garnish each with fresh raspberry and lemon peel strips. Store loosely covered in refrigerator.

Make the Most of This Recipe With Tips From The Betty Crocker® Kitchens
One jar (9 to 10 oz) lemon curd can be substituted for the raspberries and frosting filling.
Try a lime twist on this recipe. Replace the lemon peel with lime peel, lemon juice with lime juice.
If you have only one pan and a recipe calls for more cupcakes than your pan will make, cover and refrigerate the rest of the batter while baking the first batch. Cool the pan about 15 minutes, then bake the rest of the batter, adding 1 to 2 minutes to the bake time.
