Pink Lemonade Cupcakes
Posted on April 27 2012
I've seen a handful of pink lemonade desserts floating around Pinterest lately and just couldn't get them out of my head. Pink lemonade + cake + frosting just sounds so incredibly good! Olive and I gave pink lemonade cupcakes a whirl and they did not disappoint!
We added 3TB of Country Time powdered pink lemonade mix to our favorite vanilla cupcake recipe (which yields 12 cupcakes) and that seemed just right. We also added 3TB of the same lemonade mix to our favorite decorator frosting, but it was a little intense. I would recommend starting with 1 TB adding more to taste.
We Tinted our frosting and white jimmies with just a touch of soft pink gel paste food coloring. Check out our Custom Color Sprinkles post for more detailed instructions.
Topped with a light pink stripe paper straw(cut in half), we think they look sweet and refreshing just like the real thing.
She always has to taste the frosting first.
