If you LOVE lime, you are going to love these Margarita Cupcakes with Lime Buttercream. The sweet and tartness of these compliment each other so well. I am usually not a fan of citrus with extra sweet things, but I think the lime buttercream won me over this time. I know they aren’t lime green, but I prefer to see the lovely green specks of the lime zest rather than artificial glowing green frosting.
Margarita Cupcakes with Lime Buttercream are great for a Cinco de Mayo event! I did make these kid-friendly, but you can add a tablespoon of tequila to the buttercream and a bit of sea salt sprinkled on top if you want to make them for a more mature audience. If you need a variety of flavors, I think these would go great with Sherry’s Mojito Cupcakes.
