This month I was introduced to the blog My Hobbie Lobbie, Trisha loves to bake and craft and enjoys collecting recipes (hey me too!). She actually had our blog last month for SRC and choose to make Orange Julius.
A springtime favorite at our house is freshly picked strawberries…so sweet and delicious. A few weeks back I had a strawberry lemonade cupcake at a birthday party, it was so amazing that I couldn’t stop thinking about it. So when I saw Trisha had a recipe for a strawberry cupcake, I knew that I wanted to take it just a step further and go lemonade with it!
Although not exactly like the version I had before, this cupcake not only smells incredible, it’s a lovely combination of flavors that I would make again and again (thankfully frozen strawberries are readily available!). The frosting is creamy and the perfect complement to the tender lemonade drenched cake.
