Midnight Marrrrrgaritas!

I am dabbling with a recipe for Margarita cupcakes for the upcoming Cinco De Mayo and our next BlogCrush meetup. I think I have the cake part down. The tequila taste just hits the back of your throat as you take a bite. It’s isn’t overpowering but you know it’s there.

The buttercream still needs some work. It’s a little too lime-y. The tequila taste is just too faint, practically unnoticeable. So I’ll take another crack at it.

As for decorating – which do you think looks more relevent and cute?

Umbrella?

Margarita cupcakes

Or Straw?

(like my attempt at artistic photography?? LOL.)

Or should I explore something different altogether? What do you think?

  7. I like the umbrella 🙂 See my blog today to see what I did with my Margarita Cupcakes. Mine didn’t have a detectable tequila flavor… more of just a tangy cupcake w/ a faint lime flavored icing.

  8. These sounds so very good. I think I have to agree with Julie, I’ll take a double. And I don’t mind overpowering tequila taste. 😉

  15. I’m torn. They’re both so cute!! 🙂 The umbrella is super cute, the straw seems relevant. I think either would be fine though.
