Flamingo Cupcakes – everyone loves these pink lemonade cupcakes decorated to look like pink flamingos! They’re easy, cute, and perfect for summer!
I love using freeze-dried strawberries to give my buttercream a really intense strawberry flavor. If you can’t find it, you can use strawberry extract instead. The extract is a little weaker and tastes more artificial to me, so it’s not my first choice. Another good substitution is Strawberry Kool-Aid, which adds a strong strawberry flavor. The downside of using Kool-Aid is that it also adds color, so you can’t have as much control over the final color of your buttercream.
