Lime, Rum, and Mint

cupcake saturday

Yet another alcoholic cupcake for Monkey' birthday! I picked a rather easy theme. Thee cupcakes are Mojito flavored cupcakes, and gave me all sorts of worry while making them. They involved some funky flavors for a cupcake, and made me wonder how well they were going to turn out.


Oooh blurry photo. My bad, I'm sorry.

Despite the photos and my apprehension, these cupcakes were not only delicious, but absolutely gorgeous as well. It was definitely a differenttasting cupcake, but really, really yummy. I wound up having to add 4 cups of powdered sugar to get the consistency I wanted, but it wasn't too sugary sweet.


A few years ago, Monkey and I went on vacation with one of his sisters and her husband. The whole time, they were sipping on Mojitos- they even made a few virgin ones for Monkey and I. Not quite my cup of tea, but the cupcakes? Yum yum.
