I used the Margarita Cupcake recipe from Brown Eyed Baker. I have tried several recipes from her blog and while her results look delicious I have never had a successful venture using a recipe from her blog. This was completely different.
I did however use a slightly modified icing recipe because I personally don't care for the taste of buttercream.
This recipe also contains tequila in the cupcakes, on top of the cupcakes and in the frosting. :)
This cupcakes was a little denser than what I was used to but was still delicious. The tequila is however, optional but it does make the Margarita Cupcakes well more Margarita-y.
I wish I had a zester to get some really good lime zests to garnish with but all I had to work with was a hand grater. I also used sugar crystals to decorate with instead of salt as the recipe calls for. I used a 1M star tip to frost the cupcakes with.
The cupcake and frosting recipe can be found here.
