I thought I would add some more lemon flavor into some cupcakes I am doing so I wanted to add the zest..Will it turn brown when it bakes inside the lemon cake mix?

Nope it won't! I've added lemon zest and I can never even find it after its baked.

I use lemon zest, lime zest and orange zest every week to flavor cake batter and I have never had a problem.
