  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 350°. Line a 12-cup tin with cupcake papers.

    In a medium bowl, whisk the flour with the baking powder and salt. In a small bowl, whisk together the yogurt, vanilla, and zest and juice. Set aside.

    With an electric mixer, cream butter and granulated sugar until light. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. With mixer on low speed, add flour mixture in three batches, alternating with two additions of yogurt mixture.

    Divide evenly among cupcake cups. Bake until a toothpick inserted in center of a cake comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool 10 minutes in tin, then cool completely on a rack.

  • Step 2

    Whip the cream cheese and butter together with an electric mixer. Add the other ingredients, and mix slowly, then faster, until combined. Scrape into a piping bag fitted with the tip of your choice, and pipe. I find it helps to put the piping bag into a tall drinking glass when scraping the frosting.

  • Step 3

    Frost the cupcakes. Crush the graham crackers, then sprinkle over the frosted tops for garnish.
