Margarita Lime Cupcakes

Margarita Lime Cupcakes

 

Betty Crocker White Cake Mix

White Chocolate Pudding Mix

Jose Cuervo Classic Lime Margarita mix with Tequila

4 Whole Eggs

Vegetable Oil

Fresh Lime Juice

C&H Powdered Sugar

Lime

Thick wine glasses–I bought mine at the Dixon Dollar Tree

(Guess how much I paid for them?)

 

Preheat oven to 325.

Blend together 4 eggs, Cake Mix, pudding mix, 1/3 cup vegetable oil, and 1 1/4 cups margarita mix.  Prepare each glass with cooking spray and fill with 1/3 cup of batter (~2 Pampered Chef large scoops).

Bake on cookie sheet for ~23 minutes.  Cool completely.  Use wet, then dry paper towels to clean excess spray on inside of glass.

 

Icing:

Use desired amount of powdered sugar (~ 1 cup per 5 glasses) with fresh lime juice to make a thin glaze.  Poke several holes in the top of each cupcake and pour glaze on top.  I used a decorating bag with a coupler and tip 7 to control the flow.

After Icing sets, dip each rim in lime juice and then sugar, garnish with lime slice.

 

I also took a small amount of buttercream icing (recipe on this site) thinned with lime juice and added a small swirl with a tip 21 on top.

Sprinkle with Disco Dust :)  I know, right?
