Margarita cupcakes

Margarita cupcakes

These margarita cupcakes are perfect for your next party! Made with a fluffy and moist cake and topped with lime cream cheese frosting, they’re sure to be a hit! Plus they are super simple and can be made with tequila or alcohol free.

These margarita cupcakes are a great treat for any occasion, including Cinco de Mayo and birthday parties!

The cupcake base is made with lime zest, lime juice, and a little bit of tequila in it for that real margarita flavor, and the frosting is made with cream cheese and some more lime zest and juice. (See notes below for how to make these without tequila.)

The tang from the cream cheese pairs great with the lime in the cupcake and it makes the perfect combination of not-too-sweet, not-too-limey and no bitterness from the tequila.

Just a classic margarita in cupcake form!
