This weekend was a little bit crazy ...

and so, although I did make some yummy and quite pretty tequila sunrise cupcakes there is no photographic proof of such.

On the plus side, since I made cupcakes my little brother is at this very moment cleaning my kitchen :) I'll call it a win.

So this was somewhat of a 'cheater' recipe as I used a white cake mix as a base and then altered it since I was short on time and measuring ingredients didn't fit into my schedule.

Here is the recipe:
- One box of white cake mix
- 3 eggs - yes whole eggs (I didn't need the cake to actually be white)
- 3/4 C tequila
- 3/4 C water
- 1/4 C vegetable oil
- 1 splash of orange flavoring
- 1 splash of cherry flavoring

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In the bowl of your stand mixer, mix together cake mix, eggs, tequila, water and oil. Mix for 2 minutes until batter is fluffy. Divide batter 1/4 in a small bowl and leave 3/4 in the bowl. Stir in cherry flavoring to the small bowl and add a drop or two of red food coloring. Stir in orange flavoring to the larger bowl of batter.

Spoon red cherry flavored batter into the bottom of the cupcake liners (just enough to cover the bottom of the liner) top with orange flavored batter to fill to 2/3 full.

Bake for 16-18 minutes.

While those are baking make 7-minute frosting (see next post for recipe) and frost once they are cool.
