Margarita Cupcakes

MMM… Margarita Cupcakes! Who doesn’t love a good Margarita ..and they just happen to be my husband’s favorite! So when I saw these little Margarita Mixer Shots at Cake Camp a few weeks back I knew I would have to try them!  Luckily I keep vanilla boxed cakes & cupcake wrappers in stock for occasions just like this;)!

I replaced 2oz of water with 2oz of Tequila – It said rum, but I automatically just thought Tequila …I guess I will just have to make them again to compare;)!

Lined my pan with cupcake wrappers and got my measuring cup out to make sure I put about the same amount of batter in each one.

18-24 minutes later at 350, and they were cupcakes!

Next I took a little bowl and filled it with the pre-made Jose Cuervo Gold Margarita Mix, with tequila already in it and started brushing the tops!  I went over them about 3 times each.

And then the frosting!! I frosted these with a lemon/lime Cream Cheese Icing!

Here is how I made it:

Equal parts cream cheese and butter thoroughly combined, then added a TBS of lemon Juice and a TBS of Lime juice and added about 4-5 cups of powdered sugar – until I liked the consistency of the icing.

Then put the icing into a piping bag with a 1D tip

And swirl it around the top. I started from the outside and worked my way into the center.  *If you were to swirl the icing in reverse (so from the center out) it would look like a rose!

These were Ah-Mazing!!

…and of course IF there are any left over I will be making Margarita Cake Pops with the Easy Roller or New Mini Easy Roller next!! 🙂  Just through the whole cupcake(s) minus the wrapper of course, into a mixer or food processor, wait for it to turn to dough.  Then roll them out like this:

For a little extra margarita flavor, dip them in lime flavored candy melts!! (just add a few drops of oil based flavor to the melts!)
