Cinco De Mayo Cupcakes!

Hola Friends! I’m sure you all know it was Cinco De Mayo this weekend and I couldn’t think of a better reason to bust out my dusty, haven’t been used since I moved, cupcake supplies!

I looked online (pinterest, lets be real) and found this recipe from recipe girl and then adapted it (by adding more booze, lets be real again) and boom here we have some semi-potent and wickedly delicious cupcakes that were a very fun treat to celebrate with!

A few notes: The alcohol had kinda baked out and I was going for flavor so I added a shot of tequila to the frosting, which made it only the slightest bit noticeable.  The lime flavor and margarita mix were what really shined! Also, the frosting was so hard to work with, I am assuming it was something I missed but thought I would point it out. I ended up adding more butter because I could not for the life of me get it to spread.  I think I will add heavy cream next time to make it more of a traditional buttercream.


I was pretty happy with how they turned out and even the skeptic friends enjoyed them!

That is all for now, hopefully these cupcake posts become a little more frequent;)
