Lemon Cream Cupcakes

My niece Alyssa made these cupcakes while I visitingI thought they were very worthy of the blog. 

1 pkg.       Lemon Jello (3 oz. pkg.)
1               White Cake Mix
1 pkg.       Instant Cheesecake pudding & pie filling mix (4 serving size)
1 1/4 C     Lemonade
4               Eggs
1/3 C        Oil
1 t.            Vanilla
Preheat Oven to 350.  Set aside 2 t. Lemon Jello mix for frosting.  In a mixing bowl beat the remaining jello, cake mix, pudding mix, lemonade, eggs, oil, and vanilla.  Spoon batter into muffin tins lined with cupcake papers.  Fill about 2/3's full.  Bake for 18-20 minutes.  Cool! 

Cream Cheese Frosting
1 pkg.        Cream Cheese (8 oz.)
1/2 C.        Butter
2 t.             Vanilla
5 1/2 - 6 C Powder Sugar
Allow Cream Cheese and butter to sit at roomn temperature for 30 minutes.  In a large mixing bowl, mix butter, cream cheese and vanilla until fluffy.  Gradually beat in powder sugar and remaining 2 t Lemon pudding mix.  
Top with Lemon Zest!

I was searching for a lemon cupcake recipe to try for my daughters baby shower to be in July. They look beautiful and the recipe sounds easy yet tasty. Any hints on creating a firm frosting that will hold up for the outside summer shower? Also what technique did you use to first cupcakes? Just. Knife or spatula?
