I’m getting into my “duck and weave” stance. I don’t want to get punched in the face when I tell you I made these with cake mix. I’ve said it 1,000 times, so I’ll say it 1,001 times. I grew up on cake mix. I discovered my love for cupcakes over a box of Duncan Hines red velvet cake mix.
Some of you may be asking….what do Cinco de Mayo and Graduation have to do with each other? Well, in MY case, we are having a graduation party for my daughter Britta on Sunday which just happens to be….yep….May 5th…Cinco de Mayo! Since the two happen to fall on the same day I decided to give a nod to the holiday by adding this fun little idea to the mix. I mean who can resist an adorable Sombrero cookie!? I’m betting NO ONE.
I thought for sure I’d found one to best it when I came across a recipe for a Margarita Cheesecake in Jon Bonnell’s, Fine Texas Cuisine. While the directions were imprecise, I thought I could work my way through the omissions and still come up with a gorgeous cake. It didn’t work that way.
I guess, I’m on a cake run with last week’s cake and now this one. And holy-cakeness, is this ever a cake. Let’s talk about this traditional Mexican dessert that’s known as a Tres Leches Cake. That simply translates to three milk cake.
I told you recently that Cinco de Mayo was one of my all-time favorite holidays to bake for, so I couldn’t help but share another great and festive recipe. A true Fiesta isn’t complete without a limey margarita right?
When planning out dinner menus I find it challenging to come up with Mexican side dishes beyond the typical beans and rice. And besides, when I am watching my carbs beans and rice just don’t work for me. I stumbled upon a recipe for Mexican grilled corn on Pinterest a few months back and have been meaning to try it. Boy am I happy I did! It was delicious!
The flavor of margarita in a shortbread-style cookie and a perfect light note to end your Cinco de Mayo celebration on!
Fresh lime zest and a sprinkling of sea salt and turbinado sugar make for a sweet and tart combination and a guaranteed fiesta in every bite!
If you have never had Fried Ice Cream, you’re really missing out, and I do mean REALLY missing out! I should probably start off by saying I LOVE ice cream. It’s probably my biggest weakness. Ummmm, on second thought there’s probably no probably about it.
Make a healthier version of this delicious fried treat by baking it instead.
These pastries bake until slightly puffed, then you broil them until golden and crispy. Serve with dulce de leche, chocolate sauce or marshmallow fluff.
Cinco De Mayo is coming up so what better way to celebrate then to make Pina Colada Cupcakes. This festive recipe is a moist pineapple rum cupcake frosted with coconut rum buttercream and topped with a kiss of sweetened, shredded coconut.
