Strawberry lemonade is one of my favorite drinks. So the other day when I had a hankering for desert, making this delicious flavor combo into a cupcake just made sense. These cupcakes are sweet with a little tang perfection. 

Cupcake Ingredients: 
2 lb carton strawberries, chopped
2 sticks butter at room temp
zest of1 lemon
4 eggs
1 cup butermilk
2 cups sugar
2 3/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbs baking powder
1/2 cup lemonade
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp lemon extract

Frosting Ingredients: 
1 cup butter, room temp
zest from 1 lemon
4 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup lemonade 
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp lavender

Mix your cake ingredients together, then bake at 425 for approximately 20 minutes. Allow to cool. Mix your frosting ingredients together, then top your cupcakes. Add extra cut strawberries as a garnish. 

These sweet treats will not only have you happy that Spring is finally here, but they might just get you excited for summer as well. Enjoy!
