Made 12 standard size cupcakes and 9 mini cupcakes. The recipe is for 12, but since I added extra tequila it made more.

I did a new piping job that I saw on Cupcake Wars. I’m liking this one, might be my new fav.

Margarita Cupcakes
(from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World)

• 1/4 cup lime juice
• 1 1/2 tsp lime zest (1 lime)
• 1 cup soy milk (plain or vanilla) (I used almond milk)
• 1/4 cup vegetable oil
• 2 tsp tequila (I used 1/2 cup)
• 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
• 1 cup sugar
• 1 1/3 cup all purpose flour (I used whole wheat)
• 1/4 tsp baking soda
• 1/2 tsp baking powder
• 1/2 tsp salt

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350F. Fill a 12-cup muffin tin with liners.
In a large bowl, mix together lime juice, lime zest, soy milk, oil , tequila, vanilla and sugar.
In a small bowl, mix together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Add to lime mixture and stir until just combined. Divide evenly into muffin tins.
Bake for 20-24 minutes, until a tester comes out clean and the cakes spring back when lightly pressed.

Turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely before frosting.
