These cupcakes are good. They're so original. For the frosting I made several kinds, the best was when i took a jar of cream cheese frosting and just squeezed an entire lemon worth of juice into it. It tasted wonderful everyone commented on how good the frosting was when i put it on plain yellow cupcakes too!

These cupcakes are to die for! The flavor is exactly what it says, pink lemonade....only in a cupcake! I added 1tbsp of fresh squeezed lemon juice to the batter. The only problem I had was getting them out of the cupcake pan without breaking them apart since they are very delicate. I topped them simply with cool whip. I will definately, yes definately make these again!! Made for Comfort Cafe Summer 09.
ETA: I have to agree, LJSteve's photos ARE to die for! YUM!!

This cupcakes are yummy!!! I made them for a work function and they were gobbled up in minutes. Just the right amount of Pink Lemonade flavor. I topped them with a Pink Lemonade Buttercream. I used the Pink Lemonade concentrate to flavor my basic Buttercream recipe and added the zest of one Lemon to give it some additional tartness. Once decorated with the Buttercream I dusted them with some Sparkling Sugar. Check out my photos. They are to die for. I'll definitely make these again!

WONDERFUL! I don't bother with the pink; regular lemonade is fine with me. The cake recipe is perfect as is; plenty of lemon flavor. For frosting, I accidentally discovered that adding some of the leftover lemonade concentrate to Cool Whip causes it to thicken! Makes the perfect topping for these cupcakes.

Amazing recipe I did however just use a very simple cake recipe instead of using a mix. I also added my own jello icing recipe with lemon jello it was great thanks!

I'd love to give this recipe some stars, but I messed up. TIP: Only add the 3/4 cup of pink lemonade called for. I didn't pay attention and added all. Problem is the batter tasted fine but not the cupcakes (way too tart!) I didn't reliaze this until after the party were I took 48!! Nobody liked them! My DS encouraged me by saying nobody knew I brought them. Got to love your kids! I will try this again, and Carefully follow the directions.
