Lemon Buttermilk Cupcakes with Lemon Cream Frosting

These cupcakes disappear within minutes at our house. They taste like something you would buy at an expensive cupcake shop. They are very moist and dense, similar to the coconut cake recipe, and are best if frozen overnight. The lemon cream frosting is to die for, I could eat it with a spoon right out of the mixing bowl!!!
