Tequila Sunrise Cupcakes Frosting
Why I Love This Recipe
Ingredients You'll Need
1/4 butter or non-hydrogenated shortening, softened
1 tbsp soymilk
3 tbsp lime juice
1/2 tsp grenadine
1/2 tsp orange zest
1 tbsp tequila
2+ cups confectioners sugar
maraschino cherries or strips of orange peel, for garnish
Cream together butter/non-hydrogenated shortening (depending on whether you want the frosting vegan or not), soymilk, orange juice, tequila, grenadine, orange zest and 2 cups of confectioners sugar.
Add in more sugar as needed to make frosting stiff, but spreadable.
Spread on cupcakes and roll the edges in a small amount of coarse, colored sugar (poured into a small bowl, so it's easy to direct it).
