Food blog Sally's Baking Addiction celebrates the popular Cinco de Mayo holiday with a series of sweet cakes that transform a margarita beverage into a festive cocktail cupcake. The cakes commemorate the flavors of the popular blended sweet and savory beverage in a new, solid format.

The margarita cupcakes are similar to the frozen and blended drink in that the prominent flavors like tequila, lime and salt remain the same. The difference is that the cupcakes repurpose the flavors in an unconventional and baked sweets recipe that features a vanilla cupcake sponge infused with fresh lime. The cupcakes are then topped with a tequila lime frosting containing several tablespoons of the liquor to achieve the authentic taste of the blended drink. A pinch of salt is also included, to reference the rim of the drink.
