Pink Lemonade Cupcakes (with Pink Lemonade frosting!)

I made these for the Scentsy party and for Phill's uncle's birthday.
They were interesting and very well enjoyed!
Recipe courtesy of Paula Deen via Food Network (Pink Lemonade Layer Cake).

I would recommend grating the lemon zest VERY finely, I find eating long strings of lemon zest reminds me of having a hair in my food.

1C butter, softened
1 box white cake mix (I used Pillsbury, it was on sale)
1 tsp lemon zest
2 tsp vanilla extract
3 tbs pink lemonade drink mix powder

1 lb powdered sugar
5 tbs frozen pink lemonade concentrate
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp lemon zest

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Prepare cake batter using directions (and ingredients) from package.
  3. Add lemon zest, vanilla, and pink lemonade powder to batter.
  4. Pour batter into prepared cupcake pan w liners (or greased muffin pans).
  5. Bake ~32 minutes or until golden brown.
  6. Cool completely.
  7. While cakes are cooling, prepare frosting.
  8. Beat butter and sugar together until fluffy.
  9. Add vanilla, lemon zest, and frozen lemonade concentrate to mix.
  10. Beat until well combined.
  11. Frost those cupcakes.
  12. Enjoy!
