Servings

  • 1 package (2-layer size) white cake mix
  • 1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons McCormick® Pure Lemon Extract, divided
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • 1 package (16 ounces) confectioners’ sugar
  • 10 drops McCormick® Yellow Food Color
  • 18 large marshmallows
  • Decorating sugar

Instructions

  • Prepare cake mix as directed on package, adding 1 tablespoon of the lemon extract. Spoon into 18 paper-lined muffin cups, filling each cup 2/3 full. Bake as directed for cupcakes. Cool cupcakes on wire rack.

  • For the Frosting, beat cream cheese, butter, sour cream and remaining 2 teaspoons lemon extract in large bowl until light and fluffy. Gradually beat in confectioners' sugar until smooth. Stir in food color until evenly tinted. Frost cooled cupcakes.

  • To decorate cupcakes, cut each marshmallow crosswise into 5 slices. Sprinkle 1 side of each marshmallow slice with decorating sugar.
