Just wanted to have a little fun with a cake mix. What better way to bring in some sunshine. The kids loved these. Us adults loved the lemon cupcake with some cheesecake filling ;) These would also be great with a orange cake mix. Fits the name ;)
Oh added some rainbow sprinkles to the cake mix for some extra fun.
Enjoy.
