Seís de Mayo: Margarita Cupcakes

This is the fourth and final post about our Seís de Mayo party and for some people, probably the best post, because it's about dessert: margarita cupcakes.

I guess I don't remember it being a difficult skill to master, but apparently it is not as simple as it would seem.
