If strawberry cupcakes aren’t to your liking…how about some Pink Lemonade Cupcakes? Oh. My. Goodness! These are GOOD! You have to like pink lemonade though to like these. They are a bit tart, but really tasty!
Since we have quite a large number in our family, one batch of cupcakes wasn’t going to cut it, so I made two for my daughter’s birthday party. The strawberry cupcakes on yesterday’s post and these pink lemonade ones.
I found the recipe for these at Confections of a Foodie Bride.
Pink Lemonade Cupcakes:
3/8 cup water
3/4 cup pink lemonade (frozen concentrate, thawed)
box of white cake mix
3 egg whites
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
Mix all ingredients together in mixer. Mix until just incorporated. Fill cupcake liners 1/2 to 3/4 full. Bake for 20-25 minutes at 350 degrees.
Lemon Buttercream Icing:
3 cups + 3 Tbsp confectioners sugar
1 stick unsalted butter (room temperature)
1/8 tsp salt
1 Tbsp lemon juice
Mix until creamy with no lumps of butter. Fill a pastry bag and pipe onto cool cupcakes.
* I altered the original recipe a bit so that mine would be a bit less tart! I didn’t want the tartness to be to overwhelming. I really like how they turned out.
My husband was a BIG fan of these cupcakes. He ate two in one sitting…sorry about that babe!
I am loving all the fun things and tastes you can get with cupcakes nowadays. Do you have any favorite cupcake recipes we gotta try?
