margarita cupcakes

May 5, 2012 by Angie

Happy Cinco de Mayo!  I hear it’s kind of a fake holiday but I’ll accept any excuse for margaritas and Mexican food.

Reddit’s 52 Weeks of Baking challenge for Week 18 is to transform a drink into a dessert.  I followed Isa Chandra Moskowitz’s recipe for Mucho Margarita Cupcakes from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World.  As always, her recipe is marvelous and led to fantastic cupcakes.  They contain a small amount of tequila and some fresh lime juice and zest.  They really do taste like a margarita! Refreshingly lime-y and tangy.

I made just one recipe each of cupcake batter and frosting.  It yielded enough for 24 mini cupcakes and 6 regular-sized ones.  Check out a photo of the lime-i-licious frosting below.

I decorated the larger cupcakes with a lime wedge.  Festive!  Don’t forget the guacamole and tacos.
