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.
