Pink Cupcakes

I've been trying for days to upload of video of Stella in her jumperoo which refuses to be added to blogger or facebook. So instead of adorable baby on this blog, today there will be cupcakes! Adorable pink lemonade cupcakes! I got asked my numerous people for this recipe so I thought I would post it up here, with some pictures! This recipe comes from a collection of cupcake recipes that my sister-in-law Cheryl gave me for Christmas.

1 package of white cake mix (with out pudding)
1 cup of water
3 egg whites
1/3 cup plus 1/4 cup thawed frozen pink lemonade concentrate
2 tbsp vegetable oil
red food colouring

4 cups powdered sugar
1/3 cup butter (softened)
red food colouring

Beat cake mix, water, egg whites 1/3 cup lemonade, oil and food colouring.
Bake at 350 for 18-22 minutes
Beat powdered sugar, butter and remaining 1/4 cup lemonade, add food colouring to desired shade of pink.

I did feel like I was cheating a little bit with the cake mix, I usually like to know what's going into my baking. I'm sure you could also just use lemons to get the lemon taste with red food colouring. I left the food colouring out of the batter, but added it to the icing. The lemonade made the cupcakes a little pink already and I had to ration the last little bit of food colouring I had left. Apparently I make a lot of pink food. I also only used 3 cups of powdered sugar.

I heart my stand mixer

I heart cupcakes

Stella finally got her exersaucer today! We've been watching the sales to use up the last of the Babies R Us giftcards. She's a big fan.
