Cinco de Mayo Margarita Cupcakes!

My cinco de mayo vegan margarita cupcakes minus the frosting which was with cream cheese and whipped cream.



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




I bathed them in tequila lol. I brushed on the tops before frosting them.



The mini cupcake above a shot glass 😍



Standard cupcake with one type of piping job. The typical one I use.



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


Loving this new frosting!


Moist, as you can see.

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

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.
