Happy Pink Saturday with Vanilla Lemon-Lemonade Cupcakes for Father's Day....

Today I'm connecting with Beverly at HowSweetTheSound for Pink Saturday.  Be sure to follow my link to her blog for more Pink participants.

I've been experimenting with recipes and found a delightful vanilla cupcake recipe that has lemon zest and lemonade. Hence it is a Vanilla Lemon-Lemonade cupcake. It requires extra mixing and buttermilk and carefully folding in stiff egg whites. To the buttercream frosting I added both lemon zest and pink lemonade so its lovely.
See how pretty in my covered cake stand....all the Pinkness...
 The colour was slightly pink but I added some pink colouring nevertheless.
My peers at work are helpful, enthusiastic tasters and they agreed it was yummy so I'm keeping it.
I made wrappers from dollar store doilies and they add a sweet touch. 
 I found the template here.

I made 2 dozen so I'll take some to the cottage and Marc and I can enjoy them over Father's Day as well.  They are PINK but  I couldn't make BLUE lemonade cupcakes.  I guess I could have chosen a different flavour...hmmmmm....but I so wanted to make these.  He'll like them no matter what colour.
Happy Father's Day to all father's out there....to my dear Son Geoff who is a fabulous daddy to Madeline...and to my Loving father who although it has been just over 5 years since he passed away I will think and remember dearly on Father's Day and to Marc a Happy Father's Day....
 Have a beautiful weekend... Judi xoxo
