Mini Margarita Cupcakes!

Before the summer is long gone, I had to share these delicious summery cupcakes with you.  I spotted them on one of my favorite Boston blogs - Delicious Dishings - and knew I had to try them out.  Hub's family were the lucky chosen ones who got to try them out on the 4th of July.

While these little cuppies were admittedly a lot of work, trust me, they are worth it!!  The other call-out is that these are definitely for adults only!  The alcohol flavor is very noticeable and while you will not get a buzz from eating a mini, it's probably not a treat you want to feed a child.

I followed Megan's recipe to a T, so if you want to try for yourself, click here for the instructions.  The recipe made TONS of minis, plus I made two thin 8" cakes that I stuck in the freezer to use when I'm in a pinch.

If you love margaritas, you will love these cupcakes.  The cake is nice and light and limey, and the tequila-lime frosting is SUPER creamy, smooth and delicious.  If you pop a whole one in your mouth it honestly tastes JUST like a classic margarita.  Weird thing that happened to mine- as the cuppies cooled, the little paper liners detached themselves from the cupcakes, you can kind of see that in the picture above.  Maybe too much alcohol?  Anyway, if you try these, ENJOY, and let me know what you think!!


  1. They look gorgeous! I'm so happy you tried the recipe!!! I still have my cakes in the freezer and don't know what I want to do with them yet.

  2. Thanks!!! I can't get over how much I LOVED the frosting and how much they really tasted like a margarita- great recipe!!! My extra cakes are still in the freezer too...maybe a labor day dessert, last of the summer :)

  3. Wish I had one. :(
    Can you save me one? :)
