Strawberry Lemonade Cupcakes
The weather in the south has been gorgeous the last couple of weeks. Mid to upper 80s and sunshine all the way! With the warm weather, I was inspired to try out a summery dessert and decided on these, raspberry lemonade cupcakes.Oh my goodness these were delicious! I found this recipe on Pinterest a few days ago and was instantly inspired to try them. I didn't have any raspberries on hand, so I substituted strawberries in the frosting, and they were fantastic! I will say, if you use strawberries, you will probably need to cut the amount of berries in half or be prepared to add extra powdered sugar. I found that the strawberries were juicier than raspberries would have been, so I used four cups of powdered sugar to make the frosting the right consistency instead of three. Regardless, I highly recommend you try these! Enjoy!
