  • Beat white cake mix, 3/4 cup pink lemonade concentrate, water, vegetable oil, egg whites, and 4 drops red food coloring together in a bowl with an electric mixer on low speed for 30 seconds. Increase speed to medium and beat until batter is smooth, about 1 minute more. Pour batter into prepared muffin cups.

  • Bake cupcakes in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of a cupcake comes out clean, about 25 minutes. Transfer cupcakes to wire racks to cool completely.

  • Beat confectioners' sugar, butter, 1/4 cup pink lemonade concentrate, and yellow food coloring together in a bowl with an electric mixer until frosting is light and the desired consistency. Spread frosting onto cooled cupcakes.

Just have to confirm what someone else said...the frosting CANNOT be mixed as the recipe is written. You must thin it out with something. Read More

I decided to try these for an end of the summer barbecue. And they were good. The cupcakes are moist and taste like lemonade! The frosting is very tart - and it was a little thick. I had to add a couple Tbsp of water. Also next time I might try adding a dash of salt to the frosting. (They say the secret to sweet is salt.) Read More
