Margarita Monday

I thought you might get a kick out of these Margarita Cupcakes seeing as how today is Cinco de Mayo and all! I found the recipe here. These were so much fun to make and you are going to love the icing...YUMMY!!! I sliced key limes and used them as the garnish because they are smaller than regular limes and I thought they were adorable. I really wanted to use the candy that looks like lime slices, but I couldn't find any. When I iced the cupcake, I extended the frosting all the way to the paper liner and over the edge so that I would have a nice band to pick up the colored sugar with. I used the jumbo size cupcake liners and doubled up on them so that their true vibrant color would show. Here is a group shot of some the girls... Hope your day is a festive one!

Hi Melissa,
I absolutely adore them! They are so cute and I bet they are delicious!! I might have to steal your picture and use for my banner one day if you don't mind.

Hugs,
LeAnn :)

They look great Melissa! But of course anything thats called a "cupcake" is always great by me!
Anyway, my advice for today is "Don't go to a Mexican restaurant on Cinco De Mayo when you're on a fast lunchbreak!" Yes, I spent an hour in one this afternoon and had to get the food to go by the time it was ready! Chimichangas are not as good out of styrofoam!
Happy Day to You! xo natalea

Those look absolutely divine. I have been thinking of making them but am too lazy to remember to write down the extra ingredients on my grocery list. After seeing this maybe I can stop being so lazy!
