I’m not much of a baker, but that doesn’t stop me from wanting to make my own baked goods. And thanks to Google, I can find easy and fun recipes to try. That’s how I came across pink lemonade cupcakes. I adapted this recipe and this recipe, which I found on Pinterest (of course).
The premise is simple: prepare white cake mix according to directions on the box (mine called for two egg whites plus water):
Add about 3 tbsp. of pink lemonade mix:
Bake (again, according to the directions on the box):
And yes, there’s one missing because I needed to get my hands on a cupcake. I’m sure you can add food coloring to get more of a pink color, but the cupcakes come out a light pink. You can also make your own pink lemonade frosting. I took the easy way out, and mixed some pink lemonade powder mix to store-bought buttercream frosting. Easy-peasy!
