I needed a dessert for a picnic over the weekend and this delicious Pink Lemonade Cake was the perfect fit. It was festive, cute, and yummy.
To make this Pink Lemonade Pound Cake extra special, I candied some lemon slices which might sound difficult but is actually wonderfully easy – but again, is purely optional for looks. To candy lemon slices, simply dissolve sugar in water over medium heat, add your lemon slices and remove from heat. You let the lemon slices cool in the syrup then transfer them to a wire rack to drain then sprinkle both sides with sugar and sprinkles
This is a super yummy, summery, fun cake. We sure loved it…I hope you will too.
