Here are some cupcakes...
And a cake...
I like to add a little pink colouring to the batter for a nice contrast!
Here is the recipe...wait, did you vote yet??? I need you all to vote! Please!!!
1 tbsp lemon zest
1 tsp vanilla extract
4 large eggs
1 cup milk
Preheat oven to 350F. Grease 2 8” round pans and line bottoms with parchment paper.
Sift flour, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl.
Beat butter in mixer until fluffy. Gradually add sugar, scraping as needed. Add concentrate, zest and vanilla. Add eggs one at a time. Beat until smooth.
On low alternate adding dry ingredients and milk (start and finish with dry ingredients).
Bake cakes about 25mins, until toothpick comes out clean. Cool.
Pink Lemonade Frosting
500g Redpath Icing Sugar
2 cups shortening (can mix ½ butter, ½ shortening if you like)
¼ cup Pink Lemonade Concentrate
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp meringue powder
Water as needed
Whip shortening (and butter, if using). Slowly begin adding icing sugar. Alternate between icing sugar and concentrate to keep frosting light and fluffy. Add vanilla. Add water if needed for spreading consistency.
Frost cooled cake and enjoy!
