Pink Lemonade Cupcakes with Lemon Curd filling {baked in a jar}

Pink Lemonade Cupcake in a Jar

I am a pink girl, I love anything and everything pink. I have a hot pink laptop, a pink cell phone cover, I wear pink lip gloss and I sip on pink lemonade. It was only natural that I would gravitate to pink lemonade cake.

My mother-in-law made a pink lemonade cake this weekend and I couldn’t believe I had never done this. I went home and the wheels were turning. I had such fun baking MONKEY BREAD IN A JAR I thought why not make individual pink lemonade cakes baked in jars ; ) And what if we added LEMON CURD to them…and what if we topped them with a light whipped topping…

Well the what IF was wonderful…

I think these would be completely wonderful for an Easter party, a child’s party, Mother’s Day celebration, oh the possibilities when it’s pretty in pink!

Pink Lemonade with Lemon Curd Filling Cake in a Jar
What you’ll need: Makes 6 individual servings
1 box of white cake mix {+ ingredients to make cake}
1 tablespoon pink lemonade mix {I used Crystal Light}
6 tablespoons lemon curd – divided
zest of 2 lemons – divided
8 ounces whipped topping

What to do:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 6 – 8 ounce mason jars with cooking spray and place them into a deep sided baking dish.

2. Into your mixer add ingredients per cake box instructions, plus the pink lemonade mix. Mix well to combine.

3. Pour approximately 1/4 cup of batter into each mason jar. Top with 1 tablespoon of lemon curd. Top with additional  1/2 cup of batter. And a sprinkle of lemon zest to each.

4. Bake for approximately 25-30 minutes OR until it passes the toothpick test.

5. After removing from oven, allow cakes to cool completely. Once cooled, top with whipped topping and lemon zest.
