Easter Lemonade Cupcakes
From YumSugar

These cupcakes are really sweet, I would maybe cut out 1/4-1/2 cups of sugar, depending on how sweet the lemonade concentrate is. Also, the cake is quite crumbly, like a muffin - I would consider adding another egg to the mixture.

3 cups cake flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup (2 sticks) butter
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup + 2 tbsp lemonade concentrate
3 eggs
3/4 cup milk
lemonade frosting (see recipe below)
1 1/2 - 2 cups sweetened coconut flake
green food coloring
48 chocolate candy eggs

This recipe makes 24 cupcakes.

Lemonade Frosting
1 cup (2 sticks) butter
2 cups powdered sugar, sifted
2 tbsp lemonade concentrate

In mixer cream butter, slowly add in sugar and mix until blended. Mix in lemonade concentrate. Add more powdered sugar as needed.
