Sweet Lemonade Cake

"Let them EAT CAKE"!!! This Sweet Lemonade Cake is such a yummy
summer treat, its full of flavor but not in a bitter, sour way...its sweet and delicious!

....and it doesn't take long to disappear!

Sweet Lemonade Cake
1 1/3 c. sugar
6 T softened butter
3 T lemonade concentrate, thawed
2 t. vanilla
2 eggs
2 egg whites
2 c. flour
1 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. baking soda
1 1/4 c. buttermilk

Add sugar, butter, lemonade concentrate, and vanilla in a large mixing bowl. Beat with an electric mixer for 5 minutes. Add eggs and egg whites. In a separate bowl place all dry ingredient and whisk them together. Add flour mixture and buttermilk alternately to wet ingredient. Beat until well mixed, but don't over mix. Spray pan (9x13 or 2 round cake pans) with pan coating and dust with flour. Pour cake batter into pans and bake at 350 for 20-23 minutes OR until top springs back when touched. Cool completely. IF you are using cake rounds, freeze them before taking them out of the pan and frosting. This makes the frosting process MUCH easier. 
  
Frosting:
2 lbs powdered sugar (1 bag)
1/2 c. -3/4 c. thawed lemonade concentrate (amount depends on how thick you want it)
1 t. vanilla
3/4 c. butter, softened

Mix all ingredient together with an electric mixer. Frost cake as desired.
