Pink Lemonade Cupcakes

Tomorrow is a coworkers 27th Birthday so I made her Pink Lemonade Cupcakes as a surprise. I found the recipe online and will post it below. The cake itself is rather dense, and both the cake and frosting have a very strong and tart taste. I enjoy the Pink lemonade taste in general so I did enjoy the cupcake, but I don;t feel that they will be everyone’s cup of tea.

Paula Dean Recipe:

Cake Ingredients:

1 box white cake (Duncan Hines) and items needed for cake mix
1 tsp lemon zest
2 tsp  vanilla extract
3 Tbsp pink lemonade drink powder mix

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line Pan with cupcake liners. Mix cake batter according to box directions. Add in Lemon zest, vanilla and lemonade powder. Pour batter into pans, and bake according to box instructions.

Frosting:
1 lb. powdered sugar
3-5 Tbsp frozen pink lemonade concentrate, thawed
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 c butter, softened

Beat butter in mixer on medium high for 2-3 minutes or until pale and creamy. Reduce speed to medium and add sugar, 1/2 cup at a time. Beat well after each addition. Increase speed as needed. Add in vanilla and lemonade concentrate until the desired consistency is reached. Beat until butter cream is smooth.
