I mean, maybe? Definitely don’t want to discount the cupcakes you see today!

I first made these for my daughter’s birthday, a couple of years ago, during lockdown. We were at a local bakery before her birthday (with masks on, back then) and saw amazing Pink Lemonade Cupcakes – complete with the little straws! We also got a vanilla M&Ms cupcake. So then, we couldn’t wait until after dinner so we took a fork and got a bite of one cupcake, and then turned the plate around, and got a bite of the other cupcake. It was hard to choose a favorite. Scarlet liked the pink lemonade cupcakes best, so that’s what we made. The pink lemonade flavor is so awesome, that we’ve also gotten pink lemonade syrup from Hawaiian Ice as well as Torani. Lots of options for summer flavors, and all year long!

Pink Lemonade Cupcakes:

What You Need:

For the cupcakes:
1.5 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
1.5 tsp baking powder
Pinch salt
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 stick butter, softened
2 tsp vanilla
¾ cup whole milk
½ cup lemon curd

For the buttercream:
2 sticks butter, softened
4 cups confectioners’ sugar
2 tbsp milk
Juice of half a lemon
Pink gel food coloring
Yellow gel food coloring

Yields: 12-15 cupcakes

What You Do:

1 – First, preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

2 – Then, line a muffin pan with cupcake liners and set aside.

3 – In a small bowl, whisk together your dry ingredients: flour, baking powder and salt.

4 – Then, in a large bowl, whisk together eggs and sugar.

5 – Add butter to egg and sugar mixture and whisk some more, and then add vanilla.

6 – Slowly add your dry ingredients to your egg and sugar mixture, alternating with the milk. Whisk and mix until completely combined.

7 – Then, fill each muffin section with approx. ¼ cup of batter.

8 – Bake for 15 to 18 minutes. Allow to cool on a wire rack before decorating.

9 – Using a knife, carve out the top center of each cupcake, about ½ an inch deep. Fill with lemon curd.

10 – In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to beat butter, confectioners’ sugar, milk and lemon juice. Start on slow and gradually increase the speed to high.

11 – The buttercream is done once all ingredients are well-combined, smooth and form semi-stiff peaks.

12 – And then, divide into two separate bowls.

13 – Color one bowl of buttercream with pink gel food coloring and the other, yellow. You only need a small drop of each color. Then, mix until completely tinted.

14 – Set up a piping bag with Wilton tip #1M. Scoop both your buttercreams into the same bag, keeping them on their own sides.

15 – And then frost each cupcake.

16 – Lastly, top with colorful paper straws – serve and enjoy!
