Categories: Frosting


  • 2 Tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 teaspoons frozen pink lemonade concentrate, thawed
  • 3 to 4 teaspoons milk. I had some heavy cream left over from another recipe and used that, but it took about 7 teaspoons to get the right consistency.
  • 2 drops red food coloring


  1. Beat the butter and the powdered sugar together. I cleaned and used the same Kitchen Aid mixing bowl. Start it slow or you may become covered in sugar dust!

  2. It won’t get too creamy because you don’t have a lot of moist for all the dry. Think about doubling the batch next time!

  3. Add the lemonade concentrate. Then beat in the milk a little at a time. You want it thin enough to spread but not watery. If it is too thin, add more powdered sugar, too thick a bit more milk.

  4. Add the two drops red food color and mix until a pretty pink.

  5. Frost Cookies!
