Strawberry Lemonade just screams “SUMMER” to me! These cupcakes are a light and refreshing treat. The best part about the recipe is that the frosting has only two ingredients and it tastes great! These cupcakes start with a box of white cake mix and uses strawberry daiquiri mix and lemon juice in place of the water. It gives the cupcakes a great flavor! Don’t worry, there is no alcohol in the daiquiri mix. The kiddos can eat them too!
