Glazed Lemon Blossoms
Glazed Lemon Blossoms are irresistible bites of cake bursting with lemon flavor. Mini yellow cake bites dunked in a sweet lemony glaze. It’s like a mouth full of sunshine.
I love lemon desserts, and mini desserts are even better. Why? Because I get to eat more of them without feeling guilty. 🙂 These tasty Glazed Lemon Blossoms are so irresistible. They are small bite-sized cakes full of lemony flavor.
Glazed Lemon Blossoms are baked in a mini muffin pan. This recipe makes a lot of mini desserts -around 4 dozen- that are perfect to pop into your mouth.

How Do I Make Glazed Lemon Blossoms?
Glazed Lemon Blossoms are really easy to make. You just mix, bake, and glaze. They really are that simple. I like to use a cookie scoop to keep all of the Lemon Blossoms the same size, but a tablespoon will work as well.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Spray a mini muffin tin with nonstick spray. Set aside.
For the Batter: Combine the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs, and oil in a medium-sized bowl and mix well with an electric mixer or use a stand mixer.
Use a mini muffin pan and fill each tin with about a tablespoon of batter or half full—Bake for 12 minutes. Cool slightly, then remove from the pan and cool on a wire cooling rack.
For the Glaze: In a bowl, add confectioners sugar, lemon juice, oil, and water. Stir until smooth. Glaze each mini cake by either dunking into the glaze or spooning glaze over the top. **Tip–add wax paper or parchment paper under the wire cooling rack. This will allow for the glaze to drip down and not mess up your countertop. And it makes for easy cleanup.
Allow the glaze to set on each Lemon Blossom before serving. This usually takes about an hour.
Store in an airtight container on your counter or in the refrigerator.
How Do I Glaze the Lemon Blossoms?
The easiest way to glaze these Lemon Blossoms is just to dunk each one into the glaze and return to the wire cooling rack. If you don’t want to get your hands sticky, you can pour the glaze over the top of each mini cake using a spoon. I have done this both ways, and the end result is the same.

How Do I Store Glazed Lemon Blossoms?
Allow the glaze to set completely. This usually takes about an hour. Once the glaze has set, store in an airtight container. If your house is cool, they are fine to leave on the counter. I prefer to keep mine in the refrigerator. I like my mini bites cold.
Where Do I Serve Glazed Lemon Blossoms?
These are perfect for any occasion. I have made these for baby showers, wedding parties, cookouts, weekend desserts, and special occasions. You can’t go wrong serving these at any party or get together. They are a great grab and go dessert. Everyone will love them.
