The NCAA lax tournament began today in College Park and we were there to cheer on the Terps. Well, I was there to tailgate more than I was there to cheer. But it was a good game and we won!
I swear, there were people there, they just sat on the other side.
More importantly, though, I made margarita cupcakes for our post-game festivities.
Normally, my online recipe file serves as a sort of recipe purgatory. I have it organized by season (anything made with corn goes into the summer file, roasts go into winter, pumpkin recipes into fall, you get the idea), with a separate file for cupcakes. Every weekend, as I get ready to go to the grocery store, I scroll through the file and look for inspiration. It takes a lot to make it from my file to my plate. These cupcakes, however, have been nagging at me since I flagged them. I have thought about them and thought about them and thought about them until last night when I baked them and this morning when I frosted them. Finally, I can silence the little voices in my head screaming at me to make these. TMI?
The cupcakes were great, but the frosting was not quite right yet. It’s made with a stick of butter and a package of cream cheese. I think next time I’ll use two packages of cream cheese instead of the butter/cream cheese combo. The only adjustment I did make to the frosting was to leave out the margarita mix and go with straight lime frosting. Call me a purist.
These are minis, can you tell?
How bout now?
Now that I have the boxed-based recipe under my belt, I may have to try these.
