Pink Lemonade Pound Cake

Hello Summer! We love pink lemonade and this seemed like a winner.  It is a heavy cake with the ingredients, bottom addition of  soaking glaze plus the top glaze. It was moist and yummy! You won't be disappointed!

1 package lemon cake
1 3 ounce package instant lemon pudding mix
4 eggs
1/3 c veg oil
1/2 c whole milk
1/2 c pink lemonade concentrate
red food coloring

Glaze for bottom~
1 cup thawed pink lemonade concentrate
1/2 c white sugar
Mix well together.

1/4 c butter
2 c powdred sugar
2 Tbsp cream
1/2 tsp vanilla
red food coloring
Melt butter and add to the sifted powdered sugar, add 2 Tbsp cream and vanilla and beat until smooth.  If you like it creamier, add a little more cream until you like it.  Add your food coloring until it is the pink you like. Drizzle over cooled cake.

Preheat your oven to 350 and prepare a bundt pan with cooking spray with flour, set aside.
Combine the cake mix, pudding, eggs, vegetable oil, 1/2 c lemonade concentrate and milk and beat well to combine.  I beat mine for 2 minutes then added the food coloring to a pink color then beat again for 30 seconds. Pour into the prepared pan and bake 50 min-1 hour.  Watch the top and if it gets to dark cover the edges with foil. Remove the cake when done and immediately prick the cake with a fork all over and pour the lemonade and sugar mixture all over it.  Let it cool in the pan until almost all the way cool.  Turn the cake over on a wire rack with a cookie sheet under it and let cool completely. Drizzle the topping over the cooled cake.....Enjoy this Summery dessert!
