Corona Lime Cupcakes - Lady Behind The CurtainCorona Lime Cupcakes - Lady Behind The Curtain

The guys love drinking beer while watching a game.  Why not add the beer to their dessert too?  These Corona Lime Cupcakes have just a hint of beer flavor with a little lime.  A fun Superbowl treat!

Don’t have football themed cupcake toppers?  You don’t need them just add a bottle cap and half a lime wedge to the top of your Corona Lime Cupcakes.  I served mine with a bowl of lime wedges.  I loved biting into it after taking a bite of cupcake.

To make your frosting look like grass use the #233 piping tip.  Make a pile of frosting and while still pressing the frosting out pull up.  Work your way around the outside and then the inside.

If you don’t want the grass look use the #4B piping tip.

If you like the cupcake toppers and would like to purchase them I bought them at ABC Cake Decorating Supplies-Phoenix.

    1. Oh wow, these may have bumped my strawberry lime margarita cupcakes on my Superbowl menu! What’s better for football than cupcakes and beer?? I’ve made them with draught before (usually Guinness) but not Corona. Genius!
