Top these unique cupcakes with Horchata Frosting ***NOTE: In the list of ingredients, I had to list the Horchata as "rice milk" since recipezaar does not recognize horchata as a valid ingredient.

I made this cake and took it to bible study for our taco night a perfect treat to go with our awesome meal and I was told by several people it was the best cake they have ever had. Even the people who didn't like cake, crazy I know lol even they had to try horchata cupcakes and they loved it. I made a horchata flavored frosting with it and it really was amazing. I love this recipe.
