Homemade Pink Flamingo Cupcakes – Inspired Beach Themed Party

If you are anything like me, flamingos make you happy, too. I can’t explain it, and I don’t really know what it is about them that brings a smile to my face…I just know that I like the way they look, their bright and cheerful color, and the elegant way that they seem to carry themselves throughout their day.  Do you know something else that I like as well? Cupcakes. It’s probably less of a mystery as to why I like cupcakes, right? Seriously…who doesn’t like cupcakes?! So, when the chance to create a recipe appeared in front of me that combined two things that I love? Consider me convinced and a HUGE fan of these Flamingo Cupcakes.

They are super fluffy, light with just right the texture, and that pink frosting is the perfect color for the upcoming summer months. Have an upcoming summer birthday or outdoor BBQ bash in the near future? These cupcakes are perfect for those occasions and are sure to make quite a presence in their place on the table. But seriously, once you add that adorable flamingo topper to the top of the cupcake? They are a whole other level of greatness. Give this Flamingo Cupcake Recipe a try for yourself and I’m certain you’ll agree!

Combine the powdered sugar, butter, vanilla extract and milk. When the frosting reaches your desired consistency, add a few drops of the pink gel food coloring and stir to combine. Attach the star frosting tip to the disposable piping bag and fill with frosting. Gently squeeze the frosting out of the piping bag in a circular motion and frost each cupcake.
