    Today I’ll be sharing these yummy pink lemonade cupcakes I made last week for a friends shower! They are pretty much the cutest cupcakes around. Not to mention super tasty! Pink lemonade frosting may be my new favorite.

    I thought about creating my own recipe… but when I spotted this pink lemonade cake mix at Target, I had to buy it. Anything to save me time! Plus the packaging was cute. ;) You could of course add the pink lemonade mix to one of your favorite white cake mixes. I actually love the taste of cake mixes though… but I HAVE to make my own frosting. I do not like that stuff in the can.
