Pink Lemonade CupcakesIf what you’re after is a combination of sweet and tart at the same time, Pink Lemonade Cupcakes might be just the thing.  Imagine the taste of pink lemonade – in a cupcake. It’s even better than pink lemonade in a glass!

These little babies are not only yummy, they are super pretty too. Oh yes, and easy – these are EASY. We’re working from a boxed  cake mix here, and just “doctoring” it up a bit….  so you can get these done quick.  Big return for minimal effort :)

Pink Lemonade Cupcakes are perfect for a birthday, Bridal shower, Christening or almost any kind of party, really.  But with those pretty pastel colors, it makes me think “spring!”.  So, of course, they’d also be great at Easter.

I think I might just whip up a batch to celebrate the arrival of spring (because remember my mantra – LIFE is a special occasion. Celebrate something EVERY day!)
