Lemonade cupcakes

So….i am a little out of my element today because i hosted two back to back shin-dig’s yesterday.

First was a ‘Real Housewives’ luncheon…..then last night it was book club.

Since i still have to go through all my photos today …i thought i’d just leave you a

Free Tip for the day.

To make lemonade cupcakes…..all you have to do is substitute lemonade for the water in the cake mix.

{i always use store bought mix}

To make lemonade frosting…same thing….just substitute lemonade for the water.

{i buy the boxed mix from Trader Joe’s}

or….just use 2 tablespoons of lemon curd to the frosting mix.

Those are edible flowers on the cupcakes ……i found those at Whole foods…

and the Dare tag is from Etsy…

and the decorative mushroom from this shop {here}

    Where’d you get the cute little mushroom? I’m looking to make a fairyland scene for my girls and this would tie in nicely w the theme.

  8. Adorable!

  9. Can’t wait to make those. Yum!!!

  10. Adorable! Love the little mushrooms and the cute tags!

  11. Oh, verrrrry cute! 🙂 Pinned it too!! 🙂
    Where did you get the tags from? Please don’t say Trader Joe’s. We haven’t got that here….!

  12. So cute! What a great host you are Kasey.

  13. lemonade! how easy is that! thanks for the tip! I too am all about the boxed cake. why try to do something yourself when it is already done so perfectly for you!

  14. Oh yum! I’ve gotta try these…love lemonade 😉

  15. What a great tip…. But, I don’t think mine would look as nice as yours do.. 🙂

    Warm blessings,


  16. how pretty…you wouldn’t believe I used pansy flowers on Hayley’s cupcakes that look so similar to yours yesterday too…but mine weren’t fake…they were real bc I realized I didn’t have my edible flowers I ordered from etsy yet which are in fact for Saturday’s party so I had to improvise and go to Lowe’s for some pansy’s…wow that was probably more than you wanted to hear…but I just couldn’t believe I did something similar yesterday too

  17. I have just happened to happen across your blog today and Looooove it!

    I subscribe to stacks of blogs and hop myself into bed and have a good look every night. I am a voyer at heart.

    I can honestly say I have just spent over an hour reading your blog!!!! (I normally don’t read through everyone’s bla, I just mostly look at the pictures). Your blog is just like a great book that I cant put down!! You are so funny and remind me of me with your relaxed parenting style. LOL

    Anyhoo, just wanted to pop my head in and say hi! Keep up the great work. Cheers from Australia

  18. hey I thought i was the tip giver


  19. Yum! I love lemon and this is such a great (easy!) idea….
    and if you were an Orange or some other fruit fan, probably just change all the lemon flavoring to orange or whatever….
    oh, the possibilities!
