Moist, flavorful Key Lime Margarita Cupcakes with Key Lime Buttercream Frosting are such a fun way to enjoy time with your girlfriends, or the perfect treat to serve at a backyard BBQ or pool party!
I spend so much time making treats for my kids and their friends. I don’t mind, actually.
I love baking and I enjoy the sounds I hear when someone loves what I made and is “Mmming” and “Aaahhhing” when they are tasting something delicious.
But sometimes I want something for me. Or for me and my friends. You know, a mom treat.
I can’t get enough of the great flavor of a good Margarita.
Sitting around with a group of girlfriends and sipping margarita’s is relaxing and we usually have loads of laughter and hilarious moments.
I love to experiment with the flavors of the margaritas I serve too.
However, face it, they are all delicious – I am not really all that picky about flavor. A margarita, is a margarita.
Unless it’s a cupcake.
How about a Key Lime Margarita Cupcake? Why not? Such a fun treat, and they look so absolutely adorable!
I recently whipped up a few batches of adult cupcakes if you will. These delicious Key Lime Margarita Cupcakes were the first step, but then I had a little fun and went further with these Strawberry Margarita Cupcakes I made.
I have some mango margarita cupcakes coming soon too, that aren’t using a bottle mix. Watch for those.
But back to the Key Lime Margarita Cupcakes.
They are very subtle and refreshing.
The lime flavor is not over powering at all, and complimented our girls night of margarita’s quite well.
They were a huge hit and incredibly easy to make in advance.
Of course, Sandra Lee Cocktail Time Key Lime Margarita Mix had a lot to do with the delicious flavor of these little gems.
They infused a ton of flavor into these cupcakes and made them delicious, yet subtle and enjoyable.
If you don’t have Sandra Lee Cocktail Time, you can certainly use an alternative and it should work the same, though I cannot verify flavor.
