Author: Jamie Rippy
Prep time: 10 mins
Cook time: 30 mins
Total time: 40 mins
  • 1 Box White Cake Mix (plus ingredients to make cake)
  • 1 Cup Sugar, plus 3 Tablespoons
  • ½ Cup Water
  • ½ Cup Tequila, plus 3 Tablespoons
  • 2 Cups Whipping Cream
  • 1 Pkg Lime Jello
  • Sea Salt
  • Lime
  1. Bake and cool cupcakes according to package directions.
  2. In a small sauce pan, mix ½ cup water and 1 cup sugar.
  3. Bring the mixture to a boil.
  4. Once the sugar has completely dissolved, set the pan of the heat and allow the syrup to cool.
  5. In a bowl, mix the remaining sugar, 3 tablespoons tequila, the package of jello and the whipping cream until stiff peaks begin to form. This will take several minutes, even with a hand mixer.
  6. Just before icing the cupcakes, add ½ tequila to the cooled syrup and mix well.
  7. Dip the top of each un-iced cupcake into the syrup two - three times, allowing the cupcake to soak up some of the syrup before icing.
  8. Ice the cupcakes using your favorite icing method (pastry bag or simply using a spreader).
  9. Sprinkle the cupcakes lightly with course sea salt.
  10. Garnish with lime wedges.
