So, yes, Cinco de Mayo has come and gone.  Alas.  (Did you enjoy your Cherry Limeade Margaritas?)  No worries, though.  We can keep the party going strong with these scrumptious Margarita Cupcakes!

In case you haven’t guessed, May’s theme is margaritas.  I know.  Not obvious at all.  And while I will never turn down a margarita (ever), a nice boozy dessert is the next best thing.  (You have tried my Boozy Mudslide Fudge Pops, haven’t you?)

I know there are tons of margarita cupcake recipes out there on the internet, but I really wanted to do one that has tequila in the mix.  (Not all of them do!)  One site that has never steered me wrong is Cake Central.  Do you know?

Almost without fail, I’ve been able to find ideas for so many different cake and icing flavor combos on Cake Central, so that was my first and only stop for inspiration for these Margarita Cupcakes.  Absolutely, I was not disappointed, and I know you won’t be either when you try them!

Much like the Banana Butterscotch Caramel Cupcakes I shared with you last year, these Margarita Cupcakes use a standard boxed mix as the base for the recipe, but it’s supplemented with all kinds of yummy to make the cake as moist and fluffy as can be.

Margarita Cupcakes

  • 1 box white cake mix
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 package cheesecake pudding mix
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • ¾ cup thawed frozen margarita concentrate
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/3 cup silver tequila
  • 1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 4 egg whites
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

Lime Cream Cheese Frosting

  • 12 tablespoons unsalted butter softened
  • 1 ½ packages (12 ounces) cream cheese softened
  • 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 6-7 cups confectioner’s sugar
  • Lime zest and lime wedges optional for garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (for dark or nonstick pans) and place cupcake liners in a muffin tin.  (For light-colored aluminum pans, increase oven temperature to 350 degrees.)
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together cake mix, sugar, flour, salt, and pudding mix. Set aside.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, mix together the sour cream, margarita concentrate, water, tequila, egg whites, and vegetable oil on low speed until combined.
