Pink Lemonade Cupcakes
Cupcakes1 box white cake mix, batter prepared according to package directions1 teaspoon lemon zest2 teaspoons vanilla extract3 tablespoons sweetened pink lemonade drink powderIcing2 sticks margarine1 cup shortening8 tablespoons frozen pink lemonade concentrate, thawed2 tablespoons milk2 teaspoons vanillaZest from 1 lemon2 pounds confectioners sugarPink icing paste or food coloring
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, and line 24 standard-size muffin cups with cupcake liners. Prepare the cake mix batter according to package directions, adding lemon zest, vanilla and pink lemonade powder. Use a 1/3-cup measuring cup to ladle the batter into lined muffin tins. Bake according to package directions, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a cupcake comes out clean. Allow the cupcakes to cool before frosting. Prepare the icing by creaming margarine, shortening, lemonade concentrate, milk and vanilla with a mixer. Beat until smooth, then mix in lemon zest. Gradually add sugar, mixing well. If desired, beat in a little pink icing paste to intensify the pale pink frosting. (Note: To take another shortcut, use a lemon cake mix instead of the doctored white cake mix.)
already dropped one of the dogs off at the vet & their groomer, she's a big Yellow Lab
and has hair thicker than mine, so she's getting shaved in order to withstand the summer heat,
+ she loves to swim and having no hair will make everyone happier.
have a wonderful weekend !
