Mojito cupcakes with lime cream cheese frosting

Isn't this color beautiful? This mojito cupcake with lime cream cheese frosting is by blogger Two Peas, where you can also get the recipe!

We had another food-themed day at work, and this time it was Mexican food. Being half Mexican, it took us 0.0025 seconds to think of two dozen savory Mexican dishes to make and bring. But we wanted to bring a dessert. Since other people were already bringing Mexican wedding cookies and arroz con leche (rice pudding), and since we had already made delicious Dulce de Leche Bars for another occasion, we decided on Mojito Cupcakes with Lime Cream Cheese Frosting. It was a good choice, because they were terrific!

Yes, these cupcakes do contain a little alcohol (rum, in the cake and the glaze), but it’s very little and just gives it flavor. You could probably substitute rum with something else, or just leave it out entirely.
