|If you end up with extra zest just freeze it and save for a later time.|
Lime Cream Cheese Frosting
If you rather use buttercream then use the recipe from the pink lemonade cupcakes and just substitute out the lemon for lime.
1 stick of butter room temp
1 (8oz) package of cream cheese room temp
2 tablespoons lime juice
1 teaspoon of lime zest
4-5cups powdered sugar
The How To
With the mixer on medium-high speed beat the butter and cream cheese until fluffy about 3mins.
Add in the lime juice, powdered sugar and zest. Mix until fulling incorporated. Add a little green food coloring to give it a true margarita feel. Frost cupcake. Now add the "salt" which is white sanding sugar that has been rolled around the bottom edge of the frosting.
Now add some umbrellas, straws, and or lime wedges for some fun finishing touches.
