Another birthday at work a few weeks ago.  Don't let the picture deceive you, this is a good cake.  I found the recipe from Better Homes and Gardens.  


1 cup butter softened
4 eggs
3-1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups granulated sugar
3-4 drops red food coloring
1-1/3 cups buttermilk
1/4 cup frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Prepare a 9 x 13 pan with Bakers Joy or Pam. In a bowl combine flour, baking powder and salt.  In another bowl, beat butter for 30 seconds.  Gradually add sugar, beating until well combined.  Scrape down sides and beat for 2 minutes more until will combined.  Add food coloring until light pink.  Add eggs one at a time.  In another bowl stir together buttermilk, lemonade concentrate and vanilla. Mixture will look curdled.  Add dry ingredients slowly and combine until well mixed.  Pour into prepared pan and bake for  30-35 minutes until center is done.  


3 cups powdered sugar
2 Tablespoons butter, softened
1/4 cup lemonade concentrate, thawed
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
4-5 drops red food coloring, or to color desired.
Splash of milk or cream

Combine all ingredients until spreading consistency.  Spread over cooled cake.
