Sorry...I just saw your request. The recipe for the cupcakes were from this site. The recipe for the icing was from the Wilton site.

Margarita Cupcakes


* 1 package lemon cake mix
1 (4 ounce) package instant lemon pudding mix
½ cup vegetable oil
¾ cup frozen margarita mix (thawed)
4 large eggs, lightly beaten
½ cup gold tequila
2 tbs triple sec
2 tbs lime zest


Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Combine cake mix, pudding mix, vegetable oil,
Margarita mix, water, eggs, tequila and triple sec in a large
mixing bowl.

Beat for 2 minutes at medium speed with an electric

Divide among cupcake pans

Bake for 15-20 minutes or until inserted toothpick in
the center comes out clean.

Key Lime Cream Cheese Icing


* 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter softened
* 8 ounces cream cheese softened
* 2 tablespoons key lime juice
* 1 teaspoon key lime zest or lemon zest
* 4-5 cups confectioners' sugar

Makes: About 3 cups.


In large bowl, cream butter, cream cheese, juice and zest with electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add 4 cups confectioners' sugar, one cup at a time; continue beating until light and fluffy. If icing is too thin add additional confectioners' sugar 1 tablespoon at a time.

They are awesome! I got an order for them the day after I took them into work. I'm making some tomorrow to take to a friends BBQ.

I second the margarita flavor, I would also suggest maybe a gingerbread cuppie w/lemon bc. garnished w/ candied lemon peel & mint leaf. that one goes good too. Have fun coming up with flavors, it is great to be able to offer many choices. icon_smile.gif
