Home cake Pink Lemonade Cupcakes

Pink Lemonade Cupcakes

by Laura

This whole week I am going to share some treats from the kitchen. 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.

Pink Lemonade Cupcakes
Cake:

  • 1 (16.25 oz) package white cake mix
  • 1 small package (3.4 oz) vanilla instant pudding
  • 3 Tbsp sweetened pink lemonade drink mix (like Country Time Pink Lemonade mix)
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 tsp lemon zest
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 3/4 cup oil
  • 4 whites eggs (save the yolks for tomorrows recipe)
  • 6 drops of pink food coloring

Frosting:

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup shortening
  • 1/2 cup frozen pink lemonade concentrate, thawed
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • Zest from 1 lemon
  • 2 pound package  or 7 1/2 cups confectioners sugar
  • 3 drops of pink food coloring

Decorations:

  1. In a large bowl, whisk cake mix, pudding mix, and drink mix together.  Add sour cream, lemon zest, water, oil, and egg whites to the dry mix. Beat with electric mixer on medium speed for about two minutes. Use a strong mixer, this batter is thick.
  2. Scoop batter into 24 lined muffin tins.  Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes until cupcakes don’t look wet and a toothpick inserted in one comes out clean. Allow to cool completely before frosting the cupcakes.
  3. Prepare the frosting by creaming butter, shortening, and lemon zest together. Then add lemonade concentrate, milk and vanilla with a mixer. Beat until smooth.  Then gradually add the sugar, mixing well until light and fluffy. Beat in the food coloring.
  4. Pipe frosting onto the cupcakes.  (You will have plenty to pile it on.  I had over 1 cup leftover.  Leftover frosting is good sandwiched between two graham crackers).  Place a lemon candy wedge on top of each cupcakes.  With the straws cut the top 1/3 of the straw off just below the flexible part.  Discard the tops.  Then cut the remaining straw pieces in half.  Place one straw piece in each cupcake to resemble a drink.

Cupcake recipe is a Real Mom Kitchen Original, Frosting is adapted from A Little Loveliness

Hi there!
Going to make these for my little one’s school party tomorrow, they look so delicious! I have a question about the cake mix and pudding. If I use a cake mix with pudding already in the box mix, should I just leave out the instant pudding?
Thanks!

I made these tonight and they didn’t come out good at all. I don’t know why. I followed the directions exactly and they were gooey and tasted gross. I even left the second part of the batch in longer and didn’t help. As soon as they rose they fell. Please tell me what went wrong or give me an idea as to what to do better.

Susan September 6, 2012 - 5:29 pm

MINE did the exact same thing! I have a feeling this has to do with this being essentially a ‘pudding cake’ recipe. I will be frosting them tomorrow and hope that filling in the large dip with frosting will be the solution.

Instead of using 3 tablespoons of powdered drink mix in the cake batter, I used 3/4 of the frozen lemonade concentrate and left out the 3/4 c of water. My cupcakes turned out excellent! It was just one last thing that I didn’t have to purchase and was able to utilize the already opened can of frozen lemonade concentrate (which was also regular lemonade – not pink as specified). Great recipe either way!!! Thanks for the recommendation!!!

Sabrina April 5, 2012 - 5:17 am

I really want to try this and the only thing holding me back was having to get both kinds of lemonade – LOVE the idea of how you used the concentrate in the cupcake, Jordan – might have to give that a shot! They really did work just fine that way? I’m such a “follow the recipe exactly” type baker…cooking is different, but baking i’m not as risky…thanks!

I don’t know if it would work for this recipe specifically, but you can often substitute plain yogurt for sour cream in baking recipes.
