(18 1/4 ounce) box white cake mix
1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 tablespoons sweetened pink
lemonade drink powder (I use Country Time)
1 pound confectioners' sugar
1 1/2 stick butter, softened
5 tablespoons of sweetened
pink lemonade drink powder mixed with 1/3 cup water
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon finely grated
Preheat the oven to 350
degrees F. Spray 2 (8-inch) round or square cake pans and line the bottoms
with parchment paper or wax paper.
Prepare the cake batter
according to the package directions on the box and then mix in 1 teaspoon
lemon zest, 2 teaspoons vanilla, and 3 tablespoons of pink lemonade drink
powder. Bake until golden and a toothpick inserted into the center of the
cake comes out clean, about 30-35 minutes. Let cakes cool. Carefully turn
one cake onto a decorative dish.
While the cakes are cooling
prepare the frosting by beating together the confectioners' sugar and
butter until fluffy. Beat in remaining frosting ingredients until
combined. Frost the cake and enjoy.
