  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line 24 muffin cups with paper muffin liners.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.

delish! great snack for the kids. put a little to much lemonade in the frosting. also try lemon cookies by LARKSPUR.

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 ...

Okay these are a hit! I was afraid theyd be two sweet but i didnt use all that icing i just put a thin layer on, but they were perfect. Moist and taste just like pink lemonade

Love these! I’ve been asked to make these for 4 different occasions. So yummy

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.
