Directions

  • To make the glaze:

  • To Frost:
  • 12. Cool completely and frost with foodiebride's Margarita Cupcakes Lime Buttercream Icing. (Next time I make that icing, I'll add fresh lime zest. The green flecks will look GREAT in the icing)

Notes

These usually have a margarita glaze, but I decided to try this recipe as frosted cupcakes this time. Both are VERY yummy. I used foodiebride's Margarita Cupcakes Lime Buttercream Icing. (It's GREAT!!) The glazed cake was a HUGE hit at one of my Cinco de Mayo Parties.
