    Can I tell you a secret?  I am a terrible cupcake decorator. Like seriously bad. For some reason I can’t maneuver a piping bag to save my life. My solution: lots of embellishments. For Pink Lemonade Cupcakes, I used two types of candy balls and chocolate sixlets. You can add colorful paper straws to mimic a beverage.

    The actual recipe for Pink Lemonade Cupcakes is super simple with only a handful of ingredients.  Make sure to use a white cake mix and frosting (because yellow mixed with red food coloring will NOT produce pink).

    Red or pink food coloring and lemon extract make for a tongue tantalizing treat.
