We held a small baby shower for a girl i work with this Friday and i decided to try out these Pink Lemonade Cupcakes! They are a white cake with the addition of pink lemonade drink mix and lemon zest to the batter. Thawed pink lemonade concentrate is added to the frosting as well as additional lemon zest. The cakes came out great! They were moist and fluffy and had great flavor. The frosting was rich with the lemon flavor and tasted tangy and delicious.
I realized while starting this recipe that i don’t own a lemon zester or even a cheese grater with the smaller holes.. A lemon zester will be added to my “wants” list along with a food processor.. I ended up using my cheese grater with the large holes and it worked out fine.
These cupcakes would be a refreshing dessert for a summer bbq! They were delicious straight out of the fridge.

I used an Atecco # 827 open star tip
I also used some Wilton pearlized sprinkles for an added touch and these always come out looking pretty. The “pearl” look is my favorite.
