Step 1

1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare the cake batter according to package instructions. Stir in the two packets of mojito drink mix + the lime zest to combine.
2.Bake the cupcakes for approx. 13-15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool completely.
3.Gently fold the crushed pineapple into the Cool Whip Frosting to combine. Add more or less to suit your taste; I found half a can was perfect. Just make sure it’s drained well so it won’t water down the fluffy whipped frosting.
4.Pipe the frosting onto the cooled cupcakes. Garnish with a mint leaf and crystal sugar, if you’d like. Serve immediately and store leftovers in fridge.
