Free Digital Cupcake Wrappers & Lemonade Cupcake Recipe

Good morning everyone! Today is a sample of what the summer will bring. Free Digital Pink Lemonade Cupcake Holders. Why summer you may ask. Well, I had my granddaughters Birthday Party, she is turning 15 on the 29th of January but we had it early for convenience. It turned out great. She requested Lemonade Cupcakes. Now I know this is more of a summer time theme but that is what she wanted so that is what I did. Here are two recipes for you to try. Of course I was on a time crunch (as always) so I used the easy one. Scroll beyond the cupcake wrappers and check them out.

Since it is still the middle of winter I didn't use these but created them for a summertime party. Click on cupcake photo to bring up a larger jpeg file. Right click on photo and save it to your computer. Print on your own printer, one page makes enough for two cupcakes. Cut out and wrap around cupcake. Glue the two matching banners together with a toothpick in the middle.

Pink Lemonade Cupcakes
Made from Cake mix
1 box white cake mix
3/4 cup frozen pink lemonade concentrate
1/2 cup water
1/3 cup vegetable oil
4 egg whites
Pink food coloring
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line 24 muffins tins with liners
Combine all of the ingredients in an electric mixer and begin by mixing low for 30 seconds, then increase the speed to medium for another minute.
Divide the batter evenly, filling the liners about 2/3 full
Bake cupcakes for about 25 minutes, or until cake tester comes out clean
Allow cupcakes to cool before frosting
Yield: Makes 24 cupcakes

Pink Lemonade Cupcakes
Made from Scratch


2 1/4 cups cake flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups buttermilk
4 large egg whites
1 1/2 cups sugar
lemon zest from two lemons
1 stick (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon pure lemon extract
Pink food coloring
Yield: Makes 24 cupcakes
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare cupcake tins by using liners or spray with non-stick cooking spray.
In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk and egg whites.
Put the sugar and lemon zest in the bowl of a stand mixer or another large bowl and rub them together with your fingers until the sugar is moist and fragrant. Add the butter and, working with the paddle or whisk attachment, or with a hand mixer, beat at medium speed for a full 3 minutes, until the butter and sugar are very light. Add the extracts and beat until combined. Add one third of the flour mixture, still beating on medium speed, then half of the milk-egg mixture. Repeat, ending by adding the final third of the flour mixture. Beat on medium for two minutes to ensure that the batter is thoroughly mixed and well aerated. Divde the batter evenly among the cupcake tins. Bake for 18-22 minutes, or until the cupcakes are are springy to the touch and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes in the pan, then continue cooling on wire rack.

Lemonade Buttercream Frosting 

3 cups confectioners sugar
1 stick unsalted butter (room temperature)
2 tbsp frozen pink lemonade concentrate
Pink food coloring
Pinch of salt

Needless to say they were a big hit.

Free Digital Fall Album Template

YEA!!! MORE Free Digital Scrapbooking Album Templates. Well, I was right, fall is in the air, it went from the mid 80's down to the upper 60's to lower 70's. It was so cold the other day we had a fire going in the house. As I was going through my photos to pick the right ones for the templates I noticed I didn't have many fall photos. I have a ton of Halloween and Thanksgiving photos but nothing that is just fall. This is all going to change this year, I am on a mission to take pictures of the trees changing color and of the mountain scenery of course with my kids in the foreground. Anyway here are 4 album templates sized 12" X 12"The will go better with fall photos maybe more serious photos.

Strawberries With Cream Cheese Filling Recipe with Free Digital Recipe Card

Hey everyone, today I wanted to share with you my new favorite recipe.
Strawberries with Cream Cheese Filling. I saw this recipe on the Paula Dean Show and fell in love with these little bites of heaven. I started experimenting with this recipe to make it a little bit better for my taste. I use 1/2 cups of confectioners sugar instead of 1/4. My suggestion would be to use the 1/4 cup and see what you think then add more to your taste. These are simple and easy. They are a bit time consuming but worth every minute. I think they would be great for a special after school snack for your back to school kids so that is why I am posting it now. Click on the recipe card and a larger screen will come up right click on the image and save it to your computer to print.
