When I found out my tequila loving neighbor was having a surprise birthday party I decided to make him a tequila infused cupcake.
It just seemed logical.
So I made him a tequila lemon cupcake with a lime buttercream!
I dont know if you can see it… but I actually rolled the edge of the cupcake is sparkling sugar to mimic salt. I dont want to name names, but a certain man I live with may or may not have been fooled into thinking it was actual salt.
*squeel* I love it when an idea comes together!
For the cupcake itself I just used box cake mix.
1 box lemon cake
1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup tequilla
I used the dry ingredients from the box and added these wet ingredients to it. I did not follow the suggested ingredient list on the box.
I filled the cupcake liners 3/4 way full and baked for about 18 minutes at 350.
So what would be perfect on a tequila infused lemon cupcakes? Lime buttercream!
I really enjoyed these! They are definitely a little sour and sweet, but is pretty much what a margarita is right? Sadly, I havent had a margarita for at least 10 years, so this is as close as I am going to get!
