Pink Lemonade Cupcakes

Yummy recipe for pink lemonade cupcakes and some cream cheese frosting!

Pink Lemonade
1 box white cake mix
1/3 cup pink lemonade concentrate (thawed)
1/2 cup buttermilk
3 eggs
2 drops of red food coloring

MIX together all ingredients until smooth. It will be pretty thick don't worry! POUR batter into paper liners and fill 3/4 full.

BAKE 15-18 minutes at 350 degrees or until the cake springs back when you touch it.

COOL before frosting.

I used the same cream cheese frosting from the German Chocolate cake I made. It is important that you don't over power the lemonade taste and this recipe is perfect! It's a light touch and not super rich.

Cream Cheese frosting (I usually double this recipe)
4 Tbsp. butter, melted
1/2  8 oz. package cream cheese, softened
2 cups powdered sugar

CREAM together melted butter, cream cheese, and powdered sugar in a large bowl.
BEAT until light and smooth.


Summertime Preview!

Is anyone else hopeful for summer?! These cupcakes are the perfect substitute when surrounded with ice and snow outside!

Rockin' Rocky Road

This recipe is great! If you ever thought that a Rocky Road cupcake was impossible, think again! This one is so delicious and gives a great replica of the ice cream!

1 box chocolate cake mix
3 eggs
1 cup milk
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup chocolate chips
1-2 cups mini marshmallows (to your desire!)

MIX together cake mix, eggs, and milk. POUR into paper liners and fill 3/4 full.

BAKE at 350 degrees for 12 minutes. Remove from oven. QUICKLY place walnuts, chocolate chips, and marshmallows on the center of each cupcake, dividing evenly. (Go big or go home right?! Top it all on!)

RETURN to oven for 3-4 more minutes. Marshmallows will turn golden. Remove from oven and cool completely on a wire rack. SERVE while still warm if desired.

This is for the Rockin' Rocky Road lovers!!!
