Strawberry Lemonade


1 pkg Strawberry cake mix
1 recipe lemon buttercream frosting

Follow directions on cake box except:
replace 1 1/3 cups water with 1 c. rose (pink) wine and 1/3 c. fresh squeezed lemon juice

let cool completely then heap on the frosting:

  • 2 sticks butter (unsalted) softened
  • 3-4 cups confectioners' sugar
  • juice of one lemon
  • 1 teaspoon lemon oil/essence/extract
  • a few drops yellow food coloring
  • fresh lemon zest (if you must)

Mix it all together in a kitchen aid - you may need to use more or less confectioners' sugar, just remember that the cakes are super sweet.
