Lemonade Cupcake Recipes


If there is one thing I LOVE to do, it’s bake. And cupcakes are a favorite, especially when they turn out this cute! We used these lemonade cupcakes for our Lemon Themed Bridal Shower and they were perfect! You can use them for any occasion-especially something Spring or Summery. They look so pretty and taste great.

Instructions:

The basic instructions are the same for each of these three cupcakes.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine cake mix, pudding mix, oil, water (or in raspberry ones, raspberry juice), sour cream, and eggs and beat till smooth.

Fill 24 cupcake liners with batter.

Bake for 18-20 minutes (for me it’s exactly 18 but ovens can vary). The raspberry ones might need a minute or two longer than the others.

 

Buttercream Frosting Recipe:

Ingredients:

  • 3 sticks softened butter
  • 4-6 C powdered sugar
  • 1/4 C milk
  • Food coloring (pink for the strawberry ones, yellow for the lemon and raspberry ones)

Instructions:

Beat butter, powdered sugar and milk. If it seems too thick, add a tiny bit more milk. Too runny? Add a little more powdered sugar.

For the raspberry and lemon flavors, add about 1-2 tsp of lemon extract to the frosting to flavor. For the strawberry add 2-3 tsp strawberry extract to taste.

Then add your food coloring.

If you want to swirl the colors on the lemonade ones, here’s how. (There’s a video to show you.)

To pipe it on, I simply put the frosting in a gallon size ziplock bag, snip off one corner and swirl it on. Then top with the fruit and the straw if you want.

And serve!
