Cuatro de Mayo Margarita Cupcakes

I have wanted to bake cupcakes for some time. It’s even on my 101 in 1001 list.

041 – Learn to bake edible cupcakes.

What prompted me to finally take action was when I saw that Mission Minis now offers cupcake classes. I wanted to learn, so I turned to my cupcake baking friend, Jean, instead. What better way to spend an evening than learning something new AND catching up with an old friend. We went to high school together, and she and the sister went to college together.

In honor of Cinco de Mayo, we made margarita cupcakes, aka lemon cupcakes with lime-and-tequila frosting.

See, real tequila used!

I learned mostly from observing. While Jean did most of the earlier work, the sister and I did the decorating…

Yes, that is a smiling poo cupcake.

Other notables: person doing the splits, a Christmas tree, Golden Gate Bridge, a yin yang, a heart, a smiley face. There was also a Ninja Turtle and Orville Redenbacher [both not pictured].

Recipe to come [probably]!

    • I learned later that a design like that meant not enough frosting for the entire cake… Next time, I have to put a thin layer as a background before going all out with the decorations. :P
