“Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot remain silent.” –Victor Hugo

Cake
1 box white cake mix
3/4 cup frozen pink lemonade concentrate
1/2 cup water
1/3 cup vegetable oil
4 egg whites
3 drops of red food coloring
(makes two dozen)

Frosting
3 cups confectioners sugar
1 stick unsalted butter (room temperature)
4 tbsp frozen pink lemonade concentrate
Pinch of salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line your cupcake pan with liners. Combine all of the ingredients and mix with an electric mixer until smooth. Divide the batter evenly, filling the liners about 2/3 full. My cupcakes were done in about 20 minutes. Place your cupcakes in the fridge to cool while you whip up your frosting.

Combine all frosting ingredients in an electric mixer on a low speed until combined
Increase speed to medium-high and beat until frosting is light and to your desired consistency.
