Vanilla Cupcakes With Strawberry Lemonade Frosting

The star here isn’t the cupcakes, but the Strawberry Lemonade Frosting. It met and then decided to exceed my, and all who experienced it, expectations.

Witness its strawberry lemonade glory:

Oh, Mrs. Tucker’s! Strawberry Lemonade Frosting

(adapted from Southern Living)

Makes 6 cups

1 cup butter, softened

1 (32-oz.) package powdered sugar

2/3 scant cup milk

1 packet Strawberry Lemonade Flavored Kool-Aid (what?!)

1 tbsp. vanilla

Beat butter at medium speed until creamy.  Gradually add powdered sugar alternately with milk, beating at low speed until well blended.  Add vanilla and Kool-Aid flavor packet.

Note: I tend not to use all of the milk because I like my frosting a bit thicker.  Judge for yourself as you mix.

The beauty of this frosting recipe is that you can add whatever flavor you like.  I almost made a grape-flavored frosting with the vanilla cupcakes, but at the last minute changed my mind.  Trust me when I say the kiddos will love it (as if anyone doubts Kool-Aid and frosting don’t mix!).

Have fun!
