Pink Lemonade Cake ~



Last Spring, my Better Homes & Garden magazine featured a pink lemonade cake on it's cover and it called my name for Easter.  So, I tucked it away and put it on my list for this year's celebration.

The cake had four layers and was quite impressive looking. 

But, I wanted to make it easier, so I embellished a white boxed cake mix.  Talk about having your cake and eat it too!

I just followed the directions on the back of my box, and where it said the amount of water, I added 1/4 cup of pink lemonade and enough milk to substitute.

I kept the frosting almost the same as directed, but I eliminated the vanilla.

The picture on the magazine cover had thinly sliced lemons on top, but I wanted mine to be decorated more.  So, I put 2 drops of green food coloring in a plastic baggie and put in 1/2 cup shredded coconut.  I bought a small bag of jelly beans to decorate the cake as well.

It was a big hit, not only did it look pretty, it tasted wonderful.

Oh, and it was easy, another bonus.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter ~

Your cake is beautiful and I absolutely adore the way you decorated it. Making a mental note, no strike that going to copy and paste your post so I make that for my Easter cake next year. We had little Lawson's birthday the day before Easter so I didn't make my Cointreau Cake,Lawson's cake was not even touched so they wanted to bring it so we could sing Happy Birthday once again. After all yesterday was in fact her birthday. I am definitely making it while I still have pansies though to decorate my cake. Maybe I will do a small luncheon, my girl friends would LOVE that. LOVED your post Mare.
