The frosting recipe: Blend the water and W.F. Marshmallow fluff. Add the I.P. pudding mix and blend again. For a smooth, fluffier texture, use an immersion blender. Refrigerate. (Can be done the night before)

The cupcake recipe: Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray 4 cavities of your nonstick cupcake pan well with nonstick spray (if using paper baking cups, spray those too). Whisk egg white until frothy (not a meringue). Mix the I.P. pancake mix, the baking powder, the baking soda. Add the additional ingredients. Divide batter evenly among 4 cupcake cavities. Bake for 11 minutes in preheated oven. Remove and let cupcakes cool on a baking rack. Frost the cooled cupcakes with frosting mixture. Garnish with additional lemon zest if desired.
