And the Winner Is...

All the votes are tallied and all the cupcakes are eaten. And while both the Bon-Appetite lemon-raspberry cupcakes and Beth's lemon-raspberry cupcakes were delicious, Beth's cupcakes were the winner by a unanimous vote. The cake was light, fluffy, and extremely moist, while holding onto a nice lemon flavor. The filling of whipped cream with fresh raspberries in it was also more impressive than the simple raspberry jam used in the Bob-Appetite cupcakes. Lastly, when it came to the frosting, a glaze can just never compete with a nice buttercream. All in all the tartness of the lemons contrasted nicely with the tartness and sweetness of the raspberries in a cake that just couldn't be beaten. Both cupcakes made a good showing, but if I had to pick one recipe to make again, it would be Beth's
