      Excellent. The flavour is not too strong - just right. I made these into little cocktail cupcakes, complete with a little slice of lime, white decorating sugar to represent the salt and a little green straw. They were a hit. Note: I also used this same recipe and substituted Strawberry Daiquiri mix and they were equally delightful.

      I did follow Chef #1517654's tips & used Frozen Limeade instead of the Margarita mix b/c that was what I had on hand... Turned out fantastic! Thanks for a keeper!

      These are delicious! To make them the way I like my Margaritas, I added a sprinkle of kosher salt to the tops of the cupcakes. Also, I dyed the icing with green & yellow food coloring. Thanks for a very fun recipe for Cinco de Mayo!
