In a bowl sift together the salt and self-rising flour. In another bowl, using an electric mixer beat together the sugar and unsalted butter, until light and fluffy.

One at a time beat in the eggs, until incorporated. Mix in the lemon zest and vanilla extract.

Into the butter mixture, gently beat the flour mixture, one third at a time, alternating with half the lemon juice and half the milk after each of the first 2 additions of flour.

Beat until well combined. Do not over mix.

The prepared cupcake liners fill with batter 3/4 full, and bake into the preheated oven, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, or about 17 minutes.

Let cool the cupcakes in the pans for about 10 minutes, then transfer them on a wire rack to cool completely.

To make the icing:

With an electric mixer on low speed, beat the cream in a chilled bowl, until the cream begins to thicken. Add in the lemon juice and confectioners’ sugar, a little at a time, and continue beating after each addition, until incorporated.

Increase the speed on the mixer to high, and beat until the icing soft peaks, for about 5 minutes. Spread on the cooled cupcakes.

Refrigerate leftovers.

Serve and Enjoy!
