Imagine soft and moist margarita cupcakes topped with fluffy margarita frosting.

It’s like classic margaritas in every bite with fresh lime flavor and a little boozy tequila.

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 has some serious competition.

This Margarita Frosting is amazing and complements this Margarita cupcakes recipe.

There won’t be much color to the finished product, but a few drops of food coloring can brighten it up if it suits you.

Homemade Margarita Cupcakes with Margarita Frosting and Lime garnishOne bite and this easy margarita frosting set the mood of “vacation”.

Beyond cupcakes, Margarita Frosting 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 rim dipped in margarita salt, and garnished with lime wedges as the holder for your cupcakes.

Your guests will think it 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.
