MINI LEMON DROP CAKES

These Mini Lemon Drops Are A Perfect Treat For Lemon Fans. Tiny Lemon Cakes Are Drenched In A Mouthwatering Lemon Glaze Making Them Delicious And Addicting.
I am a huge fan of all things lemon, and these Lemon Drops are my latest experiment. The original recipe called for a cake mix, but it made 75 lemon drops. I didn’t need that many, so I decided to come up with my own recipe. I am thrilled with how they turned out.
I took them to a bridal shower, and they were a big hit! They are soft and buttery, and the lemon glaze soaks into every nook and cranny, making every bite delectable. Be careful, they are hard to stop eating!
