There are all sorts of ways to celebrate Cinco de Mayo with cupcakes; last year we gave you margarita cupcakes in margarita glasses (see all our margarita cupcakes here), churro cupcakes, Mexican hot chocolate cupcakes and a vegan black bean tamale cupcake with guacamole! This year, here are 5 spicy cayenne cupcakes; not all these cupcakes by blogger/bakers were created as homages to Cinco de Mayo but all are certain to provide a kick.

Ginger cayenne cupcakes cupcakes with pear cream cheese frosting by Kelly Sue DeConnick, who's got the recipe via Dog Hill Kitchen. "Be warned: there is a bite at the end. It comes after you swallow and it’s just a little burn. I like it, but if that’s not your thing, well, these are not the cupcakes you’re looking for."
