I like to experiment and try different things...and this one turned out rather nicely...with help from Key Lime(Nancy) a member on here, whom pointed me in the direction of a key lime frosting I was in search of...and then I came across this cake recipe and had to make some fun cupcakes for my baking business!
When I serve these, I will sprinkle with a lil course sea salt. MMMMMMmmmm
BTW these can easily be made without the tequilla and still have great flavor because of the frozen margarita mix.
