Seasonal Potluck: Pink Lemonade Bundt Cake

I had to make a bundt to bring with me to Seattle for Jenny’s birthday. I saw this one on Pinterest recently, and thought she’d really love the pink motif. Sure there’s no “real” lemon in it, but I thought it could pass for Seasonal Potluck anyway. Its definitely VERY pink on the inside, but the outside is not as pink as the original inspiration. My lemon cake mix+red food coloring made for kind of an orangey color. To compensate, I added more food coloring to boost the pink color.

I’m writing this post on Thursday before I leave, and am hoping this cake will travel well since it doesn’t  have any real “frosting”. I read an article recently where someone had their cupcakes confiscated because frosting is considered a “liquid”. I’m crossing my fingers and hoping for the best! I’ll be sure to update you with a photo of the bright pink inside if and when we make it to Seattle. Have a fantastic weekend everyone!
