..Margarita Cupcakes

Welp, looks like I am not the only one who spent the weekend making Cinco de Mayo themed cuppy cakes! While I'm sure miss Emily's are fabulous, here is an easier recipe for some super delicious, alcohol free Margarita Cupcakes.  As these were made for a fiesta themed bridal shower (also see tequila sunrise cupcake party favors), I thought it best to not get the little cousins and grandma buzzed without them knowing. Cheers!

Ingredients for cake
1 box white cake mix
1 10 oz can of frozen Bacardi margarita mix (thawed)
2 tablespoons veggie oil
3 egg whites
1 tablespoon lime zest
1 tablespoon fresh squeezed lime juice

Mix all ingredients together until well combined. Scoop into lined cupcake pans about 3/4 full and bake on 350 degrees for 19 minutes.

Ingredients for frosting
1 8 oz package cream cheese
1 stick butter
3 cups confectioners sugar
1 tablespoon lemon zest
1 tablespoon fresh squeezed lime juice
Pinch of salt

Mix butter and cream cheese together until fluffy. Add in salt, lemon zest, and lime juice, then one cup of sugar at a time until creamy. I sprinkled them with light green sugar and stuck little straws in for the "drink" effect but that is totally optional.  A tiny lime wedge would also be adorable. Enjoy!
