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:
1 box white cake (Duncan Hines) and items needed for cake mix

3-5 Tbsp frozen pink lemonade concentrate, thawed
