Pink Lemonade Frosting

Summer is slowly coming to an end.  All of the kids are going back to school this week.  Is it me, or does that keep happening earlier and earlier?  Sad!  Summer vacay needs to be longer than 2.5 months! Though I'm sad about the kiddos, I am grateful that the weather will be cooling off soon.  Hopefully.  Until then, let's continue to quench our thirst with some pink lemonade.  Or...pink lemonade frosting!  Yum!

Here's my recipe, adapted from The Weekly Cupcake
1 and a half sticks or 3/4 c butter, softened
32 oz or 4 c powdered sugar
1 envelope or 3 Tbs Kool-aid pink lemonade powder flavoring
1/8-1/4 c plus 1 Tbs milk
1/4 tsp salt

Cream the butter and 1 Tbs milk until soft. Add powder flavoring.  Add powdered sugar by the cup, alternating with a little milk.  The Kool-aid will make your frosting a little doughy, but stay calm. Continue adding powdered sugar then milk until the desired consistency is reached.  It should be fluffy and airy, but still firm.  If you add too much milk, you can add a little more powdered sugar to even it out, but be careful!  Finally, add the salt to cut the sourness a little.

You're welcome!
