Margarita Cupcakes

By  | 

This morning was a good day.  I spent it sitting around gabbing with 3 of my 9 siblings and sneaking bits of frosting and entire margarita cupcakes.  Not suggested during swimsuit season. Ach, why not…who cares. I’ll be the girl with a bit of an extra gut. But, gosh darn I will be happy. ‘Cause I just had a cupcake. 

 Okay, let’s talk Margaritas.

Lime, and Tequila, and salt, and other “stuff”.


Roll that up into a cupcake…bliss!!!

 I would like to mention that this is not my recipe.  Because, sometimes, I find a recipe that I know I can’t make any more perfect.  It doesn’t happen often.  Because, let’s face it…my cupcake skill ego is far too large.  (those darn strawberry cupcakes yesterday humbled me a bit).  And rarely do I not think…I can do these better. It’s a problem. I’ll find a group.  But these…oh no, these…are perfect.  yum!!

I will not even give you the recipe for margarita cupcakes here.

I will make you go to the source.

Cause she deserves a high-five, woot woot, howdy pardner for creating  such awesomeness in one little cupcake!!  Brown-eyed Baker…you are my BFF. We haven’t met yet but,  we will eat popcorn and watch movies.


And the link to my BFF…

Seriously though, these cupcakes are a “must-try”, and then after you’ve tried them they will remain your favorite cupcake probably forever.  But…in case you still want to try something new in case you’ll find a better cupcake (not that likely), here are a few more recipes that might work for you:

Red Hot Cupcakes
Mallow in the Middle Cupcakes
Blackberry Cream Cupcakes
Angel Food Cupcakes
Blueberry Pancake Cupcakes
Almond Joy Better Than Sex Cupcakes

What’s your favorite cupcake recipe?  Let us know in the comments!

    I now want a margarita cupcake, but also just got out of my swimsuit and will have to refrain :)
