Strawberry Lemonade Cupcakes

Are you dreaming of Summer yet?
Having visions of sitting by the pool with a refreshing drink in your hand?
I have a delicious summery treat for you...Strawberry Lemonade Cupcakes!

 
I am really excited with how well this idea turned into delicious cupcakes,
because this recipe is simple and just SO good!

I started with my favorite strawberry cake, which uses a white cake mix.
Then I added some frozen lemonade concentrate to give it a new, intense flavor.
The sweetness of strawberries + the tang of lemonade = YUMMY!

  23. I made these and they weren't quite lemony enough for me. I added one more more tablespoon of lemonade concentrate to the batter, a 1/2 tsp of lemon extract to the icing and used the leftover lemonade concentrate to brush the tops of the cupcakes before frosting them. It was really yummy and had just the right amount of lemon.
