Alcoholic Cupcakes

For my sisters engagement party, my mom asked me to make mini cupcakes. I thought, since the party is outdoors in July, why not make summery alcoholic drink themed cupcakes? I found recipes online for strawberry daiquiri and pina colada cupcakes, along with mojito bars.

Strawberry Daiquiri Cupcakes
The strawberry daiquiri cupcakes were made with white cake mix, strawberry gelatin and of course, rum. I also created a buttercream lime and rum frosting to top them off. These were the most popular of the three.

Pina Colada Cupcakes
The pina colada cupcakes were created with yellow cake mix and pineapples. The frosting was buttercream rum with coconut. These were the second most popular of the three.

Mojito Bars
The third thing I made was mojito bars. These are basically lemon bars, but lime with rum and mint added to the "batter". These were my favorite of the three, but not as popular with everyone else as the cupcakes.

These cupcakes were so good, my sister asked me to make her wedding cake. I will make a sample cake in September to make sure I can do it!

Congrats Jess & Luke, I hope you had a great party!
