I needed a dessert for a picnic over the weekend and this delicious Pink Lemonade Cake was the perfect fit.  It was festive, cute, and yummy.

If you like sweet of cake and tangy of lemons, this will be right up your alley. I adapted the recipe below from Sugar Baby Aprons.

Pink Lemonade Pound Cake
1 package lemon cake mix
1 (3 ounce) package instant lemon pudding mix ( I used cook and serve because that’s what I had…worked fine)
4 eggs
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup frozen pink lemonade concentrate
4 drops pink or red food color, optional (I had to use way more coloring…like 20 drops to get the nice pink color)

1) Preheat oven to 350. Grease and flour one 10-inch tube pan or
bundt pan.

2) Combine the cake mix, lemon pudding mix, eggs, vegetable oil, 1/2
cup lemon concentrate and the milk. Mix until smooth. Pour the batter
into the prepared pan.

3) Bake at 350 for 50 minutes to 1 hour.

Remove from oven and prick cake all over with a fork. Immediately
pour lemonade glaze over top of cake.

LEMONADE Glaze Recipe: (that you pour over the cake when it comes out of the oven)
1 cup frozen pink lemonade concentrate, thawed
1/2 cup white sugar
Combine the remaining thawed frozen lemonade and the white sugar.
Mix thoroughly and pour over still warm cake.
Now, let cake stand in pan until almost cool then make this frosting for the top of the cake.
Pink Frosting/Glaze Recipe (for top of cake)
Melt 1/4 cup of butter in a saucepan or microwave.
Sift 2 cups of powdered sugar into a medium size bowl.
Add the melted butter to the powdered sugar.
Add 2 tablespoons of cream.
If desired either add 1/4 teaspoon of almond extract or 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla for flavor.
Beat until smooth and creamy adding a little more milk if necessary.

Add Pink food coloring until you get your desired colored.
Drizzle over cooled cake.

This is a super yummy, summery, fun cake.  We sure loved it…I hope you will too.

    Made the Pink Lemonade Cake. It is delecious. You stated you added at least 20 drops of red food color; so did I. The resulting color is more orange than pink. Then I had a “eureka” moment. Instead of yellow cake mix, use white because yellow and red make ORANGE; white and red make PINK! The lemon pudding mix and frozen pink lemonade are enough lemon flavor. The icing, of course is pink because you use powdered sugar and red food coloring.
