Pink Lemonade Cupcakes

I baked these Betty Crocker Pink Lemonade cupcakes on the weekend for my friend’s bachelorette party! It was my first time making them and they turned out great! My friend loves pink and I wanted to stick to a girlie theme when I was deciding what to top them with. These bow rings were actually meant for a Sweet 16 but I just didn’t use the ring that said “16” on it. All the girls each wore the ring from their cupcake for the evening too! I unfortunately ended up losing mine.

And I still had one of these edible treats left from the cupcakes I baked for another friend’s bachelorette party back in April so I made a special one just for the bride 😉

Pink Champagne Cupcakes

Those who know me are well aware that I LOVE to bake cupcakes! And I’m obsessed with any kind of trinket or article of clothing with cupcakes on them; I have a spatula, key chain, lanyard, timer, apron, PJ bottoms…The list could go on. I don’t know what brought on this somewhat obsession but they’re just SO cute! And obviously taste delicious. I definitely enjoy the baking process but it’s when the time comes to ice & decorate the cupcakes that the excitement ensues. For my friends and family, when it’s your birthday you can pretty much expect a pretty package of birthday cupcakes! I always bring the extras into work too which my staff love.

I love using coloured pastes to add more “personality” to the cupcakes – like making them a friends favourite colour or to go with the holiday. I have a variety of icing tips but I usually just stick to my Wilton 1M tip. I also have a growing collection of sprinkles and cupcake liners.

Recently 2 of my co-managers had their last day at my store before they start at a new location opening up at the end of the month! Of course I had to bake cupcakes and with celebrations the first thing that comes to mind is CHAMPAGNE! I decided to bake these Betty Crocker Pink Champagne Cupcakes. They are AMAZING! I’ve made them a few times before (once with blue icing) and they are always a hit. I even whipped up a batch once and divided it amongst a few of my friends due to popluar demand!
