Pink Lemonade Cupcakes with Lemon Curd filling {baked 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!
