Summer is in full swing and I couldn’t be happier…sun, flowers, vegetables from the garden, sprinklers, and swimming at the pool = Summer Fun! And let me tell you, these Strawberry Margarita Cupcake Bites fit into the Summer Fun perfectly!
Did you catch that? Cupcake Bites? Yup…a micro mini cupcake baked in a paper ketchup cup, bursting with flavor…what could be more fun? Strawberry Margarita? Hmm…maybe I should have called them Cupcake Shots!
These Cupcake Bites might be tiny, but they are packed with flavor…Classic Lime Margarita mix and chopped strawberries are mixed into a white cake mix and topped with a dollop of Cool Whip to keep them light for the Summer heat. A sprinkle of pink jimmies and a wedge of lime finish them off.
They are baked right in the ketchup cup and turned out perfectly. A couple months back, I spotted the ketchup cups at a restaurant, and after asking if I could have a few, brought them home and promptly forgot about them. Then while making my list of cupcakes I wanted to share after all the Fourth of July Cupcakes, I remembered these little beauties, and I’m so glad I did.
I was surprised that even though they are small, the cupcakes still took almost 10 minutes to bake. I think probably because of the Margarita mix and frozen chopped strawberries in the batter, but also the cups are a little thicker than a regular cupcake liner. They popped right out though, without any trouble.
Serve these up at your next Summer party with a delicious Strawberry Margarita and you will be the hit of the block!
