{recipes} lemonade cake, cookies & icing

good morning...
i've had SUCH an amazing response to the recent party i hosted...
i just wanted to say thank you to all of the readers who've taken the time to leave comments.
i mentioned the comments are like little gifts i love opening...and they are.
so i wanted to give everyone else a gift too!

there have been many inquiries about the recipes from the party...
specifically the cake & cookies.
i decided to create little recipe cards and share them with you.

let me reiterate...
the CAKE...


it was absolutely fabulous - i substituted a lemon cream cheese frosting from my baking addiction. i received comments at the party - both from kids AND adults - it was the best cake they'd ever eaten! WOW!


UPDATED: many have inquired about the type of drink mix I used in the cake. It was pink powdered Country Time Lemonade.






the COOKIES...


not so much.
i felt like they were a lot of work and they weren't all that impressive.
BUT...the icing was VERY yummy. (i DID add food coloring to achieve pink & yellow)
you could always use your favorite sugar cookie recipe and then add this delicious frosting?
(here's MY favorite sugar cookies recipe if you don't have one of your own...)
the cookies were NOT meant to be "sandwich" cookies either...
which may have been the problem...too much cookie & not enough icing?
since i wasn't sure if the icing would harden up enough to actually stack them without making a mess...
i sandwiched them together for ease of displaying them.
AND i saved myself some time by only having to frost 1/2 the batch! *wink*
this recipe makes A LOT of cookies - you could completely cut the recipe in 1/2.
SO...despite not LOVING the cookies...
i decided to share the recipe ANYWAY since so many of you have asked.
and who knows...
perhaps you'll come up with better results?



i hope you enjoy the free recipe cards as much as i've enjoyed reading all of your wonderful comments!

have a super thursday - hugs to everyone!

Keeping It Real
For those of you who are tired of hearing about the lemonade & sunshine party...
and are missing the "thirsty thursday" posts...
i've got one in the works already for next week...*wink*

Thanks Jen for the recipes and the cookies sound just fine to me...cause I'm not a big sweet, frosting kinda gal....love a good vanilla cookie! Not tired of hearing about the party either...heck if I done all that work and drug my furniture out on the lawn...you'd be hearing alot more...lol Don't know if you remember, but we took Rhonna's "The {21} Challenge" together and I've been keeping up on all your activities since there. Have a great week, fondly, Roberta
