Strawberry Lemonade Cupcakes will turn your pool party from awesome to epic. The perfect summertime treat!
Whenever I think about lemonade, my next thought is almost always Lucy from The Peanuts. Do you remember how she always had that lemonade stand where she’d sell lemonade for 5¢? At some point that lemonade stand turned into a psychiatry booth where she’d sell advice for 5¢.
Like most kids, I also had a lemonade stand when I was younger. It’s where I first learned to count money and manage costs. I wonder if I could get that old lemonade stand up and running again today? In my quiet cul-de-sac in upstate New York. Or better yet, maybe I could start my own psychiatry stand. I bet the business would be booming!
Hmmm…on second thought, maybe I should stick with the food blog. Speaking of food blog, I’m excited to share these Strawberry Lemonade Cupcakes with you today. I bet Lucy would’ve made a fortune had she just sold these cupcakes instead of her advice!
Is there anything more refreshing than a cold glass of lemonade on a hot summer day? As far as I’m concerned, lemonade is the quintessential summer drink. The only way to beat it is to top that glass with a strawberry… and then turn it into a cupcake!
These Strawberry Lemonade Cupcakes represent the best of what summer has to offer. They’re loaded with the flavors of tart lemons and sweet strawberries, and they’re the perfect dessert to bring to any summer party.
My wife called these cupcakes “the stuff that’ll make a bakery famous.” They’re that good!
I garnished each of these Strawberry Lemonade Cupcakes with a piece of candied lemon peel. (In truth, the candied lemon peels were so tasty that I almost ate them all before they made it to the cupcakes. Oops.)
I also chose to go with my standard buttercream frosting, but I bet these cupcakes would also be tasty with a cream cheese frosting. Either way, the strawberry puree is the key! So make a batch of these cupcakes this weekend and call your friends over. Then charge them 5¢ per cupcake. Enjoy!
