    • Hi Denise, I’m so sorry I don’t remember. I know I ordered them on line. I got them last year and well the memeory isn’t that great anymore. :)

      • ALLLL RIGHTY THEN, I’m comin’ after you and will be poking you in the eye with a sharp stick!!! Just joshing ya, but I am sad you don’t remember where the sombreros came from. Hubby & I will be celebrating our Wedding Anniversary this October. These little pillows of fun filled heaven would be so much fun for the dessert as we’re having a fiesta theme.

        OH WAIT, I now see where you responded to Rita with a site that carries them. You’ve been saved from pain worse then death…;)

        Thank you, I’m sure these will be a hit with our guests.

        CHEERS, CC

  1. Love these cupcakes. Never have seen this flavor cupcake and the decorating was cute! Found you on the link party at Flour Me With Love! Please share on our Tuesday Brag About It! Love to see this wonderful link.
    Very best wishes from both of us! Sharon and Denise

  2. Thanks so much for this recipe! I made a test batch today before an upcoming Cinco de Mayo party, and they’re amazing. The only thing I did was add a bit more vanilla and cinnamon to the batter, just to make sure the flavors really came through. The butter and cinnamon-sugar topping is the perfect finishing touch :)

  3. I would love to make these….but in my pantry right now i have no cake flour, can i just substitute more regular flour?

  4. These are AMAZING! My nine-year old daughter said this is her new favorite cupcake and she wants me to make them for her birthday (which isn’t until January – ha)! So creative and absolutely delicious. Everyone I made them for LOVES them and has asked for the recipe!

  5. Terrific cupcake idea! I am making these for my daughter’s 20th birthday–churros are one of her fav treats. In a pinch, I used a yellow cake mix and just added vanilla and cinnamon to the batter. Delicious! Next time I’ll try your recipe. Thank you!

  6. These came out delicious! I did change up the rising a bit. Added 3 tablespoons of coconut cream instead of milk and up’s the cinnamon by 1/2. I got lots of compliments on these and a special request to make them again. Thank you!

  7. I just made these tonight and they came out very delish! Going by what my mother said, I tested the batter but she ate the cupcake as this is my diet day. She thought it was really good. I used all cake flour and added a pinch of ground cloves and added a splash of dark rum to the melted butter. I didn’t try the frosting as I did not have cream cheese on hand but I do want to try that next time. Awesome recipe and had the taste of a churro. Love this and would make again.

  8. I made these for my daughters fiesta themed birthday party! They were a huge hit and got lots of compliments! I couldn’t find the sombreros so I used a chocolate mustache mold and put chocolate mustaches on top!!

  9. Made these for a group today and they were a big hit! :-) Thank you for the recipe. Only thing was that 5 cups of powdered sugar was too much frosting. I realized this half-way through sifting in the powdered sugar. I ended up adding the milk (to weaken the sweetness a little), a little nutmeg, and leaving the frosting as it was texture-wise. The texture was between icing and frosting-like, which was my fault, but the taste was perfect! Not too sweet, just how I like it. Thanks again! Great recipe. Will be making again in the future.

  10. This is an amazing recipe! Made them for my sisters Mexican themed bachelorette party and they were a huge hit – everyone asked for recipe! Followed recipe exactly. Will definitely be making more from this website.

  11. These cupcakes were delicious! huge hit at a cinco de mayo themed baby shower!!! this recipe is staying in my book!!!
