This whole week I am going to share some treats from the kitchen just like these pink lemonade cupcakes. You could make these to give mom on Mother’s Day. I will also share a breakfast that you can serve mom or can always have it end up in an email to your honey as a big hint for a gift for you. I guarantee that it is easy enough for dad and the kids to make.
Today, we are starting with a cupcake. I wanted something girly, fun, and flavorful. I settled on creating a pink lemonade cupcake. When I think of pink lemonade I think of sweetness with a light lemony tang. That is just what the flavor of these are. They are very different in flavor from the perfect lemon cupcakes I have shared before. Those definitely scream lemon. These cupcakes are sweet with the perfect hint of lemon.
Now trying to lose weight while being a food blogger is tough but I just started. I’ve got 2 pounds down in 2 weeks so I had to do something to help me out. So, I sent some of these off to my sister-in-law to get some out of my house so I wouldn’t eat them all. They turned out so yummy I knew I would be in trouble. She said her family all gave the cupcakes a thumbs up and especially loved the cake portion.
This cupcake just starts off with a doctored up cake mix to make it unbelievably moist and tender. It also includes some lemon zest and powdered pink lemonade mix. Then the frosting gets some lemon zest and pink lemonade concentrate.
To decorate them I went looking for some candy lemon slices. I didn’t find them at the first store I went to but I did find some grapefruit candy in the bulk candy section and went with those. I loved that they were pink and yellow. Not only will these cupcakes be great for Mother’s Day, but also for a bridal or baby shower or even a Summer party.Print
