Wordless Wednesday - with a side of recipe



Pink Lemonade Cupcakes. Really easy! REALLY yummy.

1 box white cake mix
eggs, oil and water as stated on box
Pink lemonade powder mix

Dump some of the pink lemonade powder in the water. I wanted the flavor to be strong so I kept adding until I could tell it was near the point the powder wouldn't dissolve any more.

Add pink lemonade mixture, eggs and oil to box mix and make as directed on the box.

I told you it was easy. And they are super freaking good! Top with a cream cheese frosting, or try a pink lemonade whipped cream frosting if you want something light (take heavy cream, whip, add powdered sugar, whip some more, add pink lemonade concentrate, whip some more, add powdered sugar/whip to desired consistency). I didn't go with either of these options but in my opinion, my frosting sucked so I'm not posting the recipe. (I was told it wasn't bad but I could feel the texture of the pink lemonade powder and it totally ruined the frosting for me.)

My cupcake liners are behemoth and super tall for some reason. I thought they were normal until I put them in the cupcake pans. So, I baked them and frosted them inside the liners. It was actually lucky because the frosting was super runny. Hence why I have a marbled look to the tops instead of white and pink striped star frosting mounds. Yeah.

Anyway, the cupcake recipe rocks my socks so make it and love it. Kthanksbye!
