To frost like a pro…

Place the cupcake on a flat surface in front of you. Grasp the pastry bag from the top pushing the frosting down as you slide your hand down the pastry bag. Once you start to see frosting come out of the dip twist the top of the pastry bag tight. Use a clip or a rubber band to secure the bag.

Now begin to frost the cupcake going around in one smooth motion do not stop!

Once you have completed the first circle begin the second one onto the first one as shown below. 10

Continue this process until you have covered the whole area. Now make a small peak at the top similar to how you would serve frozen yogurt a wee little twist and bam there it is a perfect frosted cupcake like a pro!

Drizzle with fudge or caramel, you can also sprinkle with chocolate sprinkles or even more chocolate chips. The more the better! 11

4. Reduce the mixer speed to medium and add the eggs one at at time, mixing thoroughly after each one

5. Scrape the sides of the bowl and add the lime zest, lime juice, vanilla extract and tequila. Mix until combined

6. Reduce the mixer speed low. Add the dry ingredients in three batches, alternating with the milk in two batches.

7. Bake for approximately 25 minutes or until just slightly golden and a skewer shows only moist crumbs attached, rotating the pan at the halfway point.

8. Allow cupcakes to cool for 5 to 10 minutes

9. Brush the tops of the cupcakes with the 1 to 2 tablespoons of tequila.

10. Let the cupcakes sit aside to cool completely before frosting them.

To make the frosting

1. Whip the butter on medium-high speed of an electric mixer using the whisk attachment for 5 minutes. Reduce the speed to medium-low, and gradually add the powdered sugar, mixing and scraping the sides of the bowl until all is incorporated.

2. Give it a mix on medium speed for about 30 seconds.

3. Add the lime juice, tequila and salt mix on medium-high speed until incorporated and fluffy. If the frosting appears a bit too soft, add some additional sugar, one spoonful at a time until desired consistency is reached.

4

4. Frost cupcakes and garnish, if desired, with lime zest, an additional sprinkling of salt and a lime wedge.

This recipe for chocolate eggs (made using balloons) is actually very easy to make and turns out really cute! Trust me, if I can do it, you can do it! I like using the small balloons and making them the size of eggs rather than making them too big because they are easier to work with, You can find the balloons at Dollar stores. ;-) These can be filled with whatever you want but I love filling them with pudding and sprinkles.
