I squished fresh raspberries in a wire mesh strainer and added the juice to the pink frosting (needed to add more powdered sugar due to the additional raspberry liquid, though) and then squished a hole in the cupcake and put in a little bit of leftover raspberry pulp.

Pure lemon extract and a little yellow powder food coloring for the lemon cupcakes.
Sprinkled with candy pearls.

Have a Sweet Weekend!
