Imagine soft and moist margarita cupcakes topped with fluffy margarita frosting. It’s like a classic margarita with fresh lime flavor and a little boozy tequila in every bite.
My friend, Briana, taunts me with photos of amazing cupcakes and frosting concoctions that make my mouth water.
I’ve eaten them, and cake boss Duff from Food Network, has some serious competition.
This Margarita Frosting is amazing and complements this Margarita cupcakes recipe.
The finished product won’t have many colors, but a few drops of food coloring can brighten it up if it suits you.
One bite and this easy margarita frosting set the mood of “vacation.”
Beyond cupcakes, frosting is the perfect topping for dessert.
A zippy addition to Cinco de Mayo celebrations, margarita cravings, or girls’ night in.
This fluffy margarita frosting is buttery and offers the fresh tangy lime flavor you love in margaritas.
Use this frosting on top of margarita cupcakes and tell your squad, “we’re eating our margaritas”!
Not overly salty, nor heavily tequila-flavored frosting.
It’s more the tangy lime with a HINT of tequila (or you can leave it out and have virgin margarita frosting).
For a stunning, fun presentation, use margarita glasses with rims dipped in margarita salt and garnished with lime wedges as the cupcake holder.
Your guests will think it is the perfect presentation for a Bachelorette party, Cinco de Mayo celebration, or any party!
They just might be the best of both worlds, booze and baking.
Drinking and desserts it’s like the ultimate downtime.
