Last week I made my first batch of margarita cupcakes with key lime cream cheese icing. Everyone loved them!

No prob! Thanks they sound yummy, I can't wait to make them!
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.
Oh my god ! they sounds so yummy . I'll try this one . Thanks for these wonderful post .
