Margarita Cupcakes is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I haven't made these yet but they sound perfect to serve when it's my turn to host "girls night" The recipe sounds delicious and I think doctoring the cake mix could not be any easier. I love the idea posted earlier about rolling the edges in sugar!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These were SOO good! I was soo impressed with them. They were light & fluffy... I topped them with the lime buttercream. I 'borrowed' an idea from someone else & put in a cut bendy straw, & a gummy lime candy. They were a HUGE hit. I was happy to see that this recipe ACTUALLY made 24 cupcakes! I used the duncan hines brand (this might be wilton recommended, I am not sure- but there was a reference to it, on the box.??).
