Pink Lemonade Cupcakes:Cupcake Tuesday

Jump to recipe!

Welcome to Cupcake Tuesday! I’m so glad to have you! I have updated the Cupcake Heaven page, there are over 100 designs and recipes! Check it out!!

It’s been super hot here in Indiana, as I’m sure it has been where you live too. Although I love the heat, and the sun, it’s been super humid too, which I don’t like.

As I finish writing this post, I’m in San Jose, California, where it’s actually a little chilly. Seems like we are never happy…right? Too hot…too cold…can’t there be a happy medium?

Today we have these yummy Pink Lemonade Cupcakes that are sure to cool you down, especially if you serve them with a nice tall glass of Pink Lemonade!

One of my very favorite tips to use to decorate cupcakes is the #1M. I think it gives the prettiest swirl. I used Buttercream Frosting and decorated some with white sugar pearlspink sparkling sugar and drizzled some with melted chocolate.

    I grew up in San Jose and that’s something I sorely miss, cool summers- it was a heat wave if it got to 90 degrees! Now I live in Phoenix averaging 105 degrees! So can’t wait to try out these cooling cupcakes! Thanks!!
