Step 1

Strawberry Margarita Cupcakes

Line cupcake muffin tins with paper cups (20-24)

Increase mixer speed to medium and mix an additional 2 minutes
Scrape bowl a couple times, as needed
Fill paper liners about ⅔ full
Bake 15-18 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean (15 minutes was perfect for me)
Cool 10 minutes in the pan
Remove to rack to cool completely
Tequila Cream Cheese Frosting
Cream together the butter and cream cheese until smooth
Add 1 cup powdered sugar and 1 tbsp of tequila, and beat on medium speed
Add the remaining 1½ cups powdered sugar, 1 tbsp of tequila, lime juice, and lime zest
