Happy Friday all. It has been a long week. I went to Oregon last week and returned to work Wednesday. So really it was a short week, but it sure didn’t feel like it. Came back to the office with alot of work waiting for me and I need a margarita!! I’m sure my coworkers won’t mind a little cheer on a friday….end of the week, either. A little tequila, some zesty lime and pinch of salt….what a way to end the week, right? So, if you are in to margaritas, you will love this cupcake. I have made the cake from scratch, but honestly, a good white cake mix doctored up is every bit as good. I hate boxed cake mixes. To me they have an after taste. But the only after taste you’re going to have here is a little bit of tequila. How could that be wrong!!!
I hope you all have a good weekend. CHEERS!!

1 box white cake mix
(replace 1/2 cup of the water lime juice and tequila)
3 eggs
1/3 cup oil
zest of 2 limes

Mix it all up, pour into your baking cups and bake at 350 for about 15 minutes. While warm, brush the tops with tequila. Take a shot for yourself and let the cupcakes cool.

Frosting:
1 block of cream cheese
1 stick of butter
juice of 1 lemon
zest of 2 limes
3 or 4 tablespoons of tequila (or more)

whip it all together, spread or pipe on the cooled cupcakes
