Mini G specially requested lemon cake. I find that cupcakes keep and travel well, so I decided to turn what usually would be a traditional lemon cake into something new – Pink Lemonade Cupcakes.

Using the handy Primrose Bakery book again, I tried out their lemon cupcake recipe.

I love lemon zest. It’s such a wake up flavor.

As it was Mini G’s idea, he wanted to help. I got out the cupcake pen and set him to work.

Lookin’ good!

Mini G also decided the cupcakes should have pink icing.

These remind me of having pink lemonade on hot summer days. The added sparkle makes them that much more fun. If only summer would get here faster!
