Around the house, there is always something sweet being baked or a treat placed on the counter. Kid’s know my house is the house to visit when you are in a mood for a treat. It just so happens that the adults know that as well. They come for miles and miles around to taste my sweet treats, mostly because we live a little bit away from them. Anyways, during one of my latest baking adventures, I wanted to try something different. Adult’s deserved a special treat, so I made a Strawberry Margarita cupcake.

On several different occasions, I have been told just how delicious my classic and iced Margarita drinks are, so I wanted to make more drinks. After many weeks of debating on what drink to make or how to present it, I ultimately went with making a strawberry Margarita dessert. These strawberry Margarita cupcakes are not only fun Mexican cupcakes to eat, but taste exactly the same as a strawberry Margarita cocktail. Are you ready to make these strawberry Margarita cupcakes with Tequila frosting?
