TGIF!! I am so excited for the weekend, more so than normal. It’s been a long week here and we are looking forward to doing some BBQing and Tacoing! I of coarse, am in charge of bringing dessert. So I will be making some Strawberry Margarita Cupcakes. What are your Cinco de Mayo Plans? Have a great weekend everyone!
Strawberry Margarita Cupcakes
How about some Dessert Nacho?
Here are some of my favorite Cinco De Mayo Recipes from around the web:
Sopapilla Cheesecake Hand Pies by Crazy for Crust
Berry Sweet Empanadas by Roxana’s Home Baking
Turkey Taco Burger with Avocado Crema by Climbing Grier Mountain
Margarita Shrimp Nachos by Country Cleaver
And this Guacamole by Shugary Sweets, I LOVE guacamole.
Do you like easy to make desserts that will impress your friends? I thought so! I made these dessert nachos last weekend and then proceeded to each half of them by myself.
I first saw dessert nachos when I was in high school. I was visiting one of my friends in Hawaii and we went to dinner before I had to board my long flight back to Vermont. Her mom asked if anyone wanted dessert, and everyone, except my friend passed on the idea. She ordered a massive plate of dessert nachos. When they showed up at the table, she literally would not share, declaring that anyone could order their own plate if they wanted some. She turned to me and said, “You have known me since kindergarten; you know I don’t share my food. I love you, but buzz off”. Despite this betrayal, she is still one my best friends, but guess what, I am NOT sharing these dessert nachos with her! XO.
When booze gets combined with cake, something great usually happens. In this case, it’s Strawberry Margarita Cupcake Shooters with fresh strawberries, lime juice, tequila and cake! These shooters are made with a strawberry cupcake infused with tequila and tequila cream cheese frosting.
These cupcakes are easy to make and can be a fun addition to your Cinco De Mayo festivities! Maybe you feel guilty for drinking a margarita at noon, but you can’t feel bad about eating a cupcake at noon right? That’s my excuse anyway.
