To me, summer means long days at the beach, rooftop parties, family barbeques and drinking refreshing lemonade non-stop.
Lemonade is the drink I crave as it heats up outside. The overwhelming citrus flavor that makes you pucker coupled with the precise amount of sweetness over a glass of ice is liquid perfection. I simply can’t get enough.
I have been adding lemonade flavor to everything this summer including this Pink Lemonade Cake. I was inspired by the original Lemonade Cake on BHG which looked like a simple and delightful sheet cake that I could definitely have fun making!
I simply made the following small changes to the recipe:
- I swapped the regular lemonade concentrate for pink lemonade concentrate in both the cake and frosting recipes.
- I also added a few drops of red food coloring to both the cake and frosting recipes to punch up the cute pink color.
The result was just what I expected: tart, sweet and delicious just like my beloved pink lemonade drink I adore. If you are looking for the perfect summer dessert, you have found it right here.
