Margarita Cupcakes

 

You can go a little or a lot with these. Go for full mock Margarita, or spike them all the way!

Vanilla Cupcake Mix and Buttercream frosting work well. Take some green food dye on a tooth pick and mix gently for only a hint of color. Drizzle with sugar for a frothy effect. Use real limes or get some lime candy:

For spiking: Add a tablespoon of Tequila and a table spoon of lime juice to both  or brush cupcakes when they’re done with Tequila
