      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!

      Wow-a taste of the Keys right here in my house! YUM! I made these in advance to make sure I wanted them for July 4th and YES, I do! The cupcake was very flavorful. The icing was the perfect compliment to the lime flavored cake. Very easy to make. I piped the icing on with a decorater tip and stuck a cinnamon graham teddy bear on top-too cute! I could not find key limes so just used regular. I will be trying the Strawberry Daiquir mix soon.
