My mum’s birthday was this past weekend, so NatalieCaileen and I made her some cupcakes fit for a princess!
1 package of white cake mix without pudding in it
1 cup water
3 egg whites
1/3 c thawed pink lemonade concentrate
2 tbs vegetable oil
4-6 drops of red food coloring
4 c powdered sugar
1/3 c softened butter
Red food coloring (until it’s the shade you want).
These pink lemonade cupcakes were so tasty, and different. The frosting is nice and tangy. We didn’t use the lemon candies that the recipes suggests, but we did put sprinkles on them.
The recipe is easy, it’s intended for kids. Preheat the oven to 350F and line 24 cupcake cups with pretty liners.
Mix the first group of ingredients together until it’s light pink, then put it into your lined cupcake tins. Pop those into your oven, and you can start on the frosting. They should be in the oven for 18-20 minutes.
Blend the second group of ingredients well. By the time you’ve gotten to the right shade of pink, your cupcakes should be ready to come out. Let them cool. For faster cooling, take them out of the pans and onto cooling racks.
Once they’re cool, you can start to frost them. We ended up not adding food coloring to our frosting, but it was still quite pink. The frosting was a little sour, but in a good way. The taste of pink lemonade wasn’t over-powering, but it was there.
These cupcakes were really great. They’re good for teaching someone how to bake, but they were hard for two adults to make together. We ended up tripping over each other quite a bit, just because we both knew what we were doing and it’s pretty easy for one person to do. But two people made clean up a lot easier!
