Margarita Cupcakes



I brought these to the family reunion this weekend.  They seemed to go over well.  I left the tequila out of the frosting because lots of little kids would be around, and didn't want to have to monitor who was eating what.  I wanted to be outside having fun!  My 6 year old spent as much time as he could over the weekend.  He was in the water pretty much from 10:30-7:30 on Saturday.  Even then it was tough to get him out!

Here are a couple pictures of him having fun! 



Margarita Cupcakes
Adapted from A Cup Full of Cake
Printable Recipe

1/4 cup canola oil

1 1/3 cups flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

In large bowl, mix together margarita mix, milk, egg whites, oil, tequila, vanilla and sugar together. 

In a small bowl mix together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.  Add to liquids and stir until just combined.  Divide evenly into 12 muffin tins.

Yahoo for family reunions! Yeah, I'd say that the ear-to-ear smiles mean that fun was had by all.

You KNOW that I'm going to be making these. Of course, tequila WILL be in my frosting. I'll just tell Dudette that there's zucchini it them and she'll stay away.

I'm sure the margarita mix did a great job of replacing the tequila in the frosting, at least it was a great option! I love margarita cupcakes and they are perfect choice for my family reunions!

Such beautiful cupcakes, Erin! And if your weather has been like ours, which I know it has, swimming was the perfect weekend activity.

I'm off to visit my family next week. I'll wave to you as we're driving on I-80~

I'm an oddball, I can't have alcohol. Is there something I could substitute? Would love to make these.

They look Amazing!!
Enjoy Cooking!!

 
At July 27, 2011 at 8:46 PM , Blogger Erin said...

@Kim Bee - I just buy the margarita mix that doesn't have alcohol in it. Leave out the Tequila - no big deal! Otherwise you could just sub lime juice for the margarita mix. Hope you try them!

I like the way you have decorated the cakes, esp with the lime piece on top.

Your cupcakes are picture perfect. YUM! I wish I could decorate my cupcakes so beautifully. I love the flavors. Margaritas are one of my favorite drinks (without the tequila) so I know these cupcakes would be perfect.
