Boozy Cupcakes

Tuesday, May 26, 2009

Around Cinco de Mayo, I saw lots of recipes for margarita cupcakes. And being the foo-foo drink loving girl I am, wanted to try them out.

My first attempt at these was a non-alcoholic version for a mother's day cookout. They didn't turn out too bad, if I say so myself. This generated a request for my nieces birthday this last weekend....but with the "good stuff".

No problem! ..And A Cookie For Dessert has directions for the boozy and non-boozy cupcakes, with a lime buttercream frosting. The lime frosting is pretty good, but I don't know if I'm in love with it. It's a little strong for my tastes. Any ideas for a substitute frosting?

For the cupcakes I made this last weekend, I just used the TGI Fridays margarita mix that comes premixed with tequila. Now, margaritas are okay, but I LOVE daiquiris and pina coladas.

I opted to make a second batch of cupcakes, substituting a strawberry cake mix and the TGI Friday daiquiri mix. I found a great rum buttercream recipe to top them off.

I could really get into this cupcake business!
