Margarita cupcakes

Cake recipe here. Frosting recipe here. I didn't use the alcohol in them though, simply because I didn't have any at the house (I don't drink much anymore).

Lime buttercream frosting before I added the food coloring ... I love that you can see the little flecks of zest!

I used a coarse sugar to simulate the look of salt.

I also made the s'mores ones. I couldn't think of two cupcakes more suitable for a picnic than s'mores and margaritas!

The chocolate pieces on top of the s'mores cupcakes are little bitty baking pieces I found recently! I had been chopping up the fun size bars of Hershey's, but these are SO much easier! I also found them in Peppermint Patty and Reese's kinds too! They are the perfect size for the top of a mini cupcake.

I got a little bit of video too, lol.
