IntroductionCocktail Cupcakes for a really Happy Hour Cocktail Cupcakes for a really Happy Hour
1 Strawberry Cake Mix
2 TBSP Light Rum
1 tsp Lime Juice
1 tsp Lime Zest
3/4 c. Egg Beaters
1/3 c. Unsweetened Applesauce
approximately 1 c. Water
6 TBSP Unsalted Butter, softened
3 1/2 c. powdered sugar
1 tsp Imitation Rum Extract
1 drop red food coloring
1-2 TBSP fat-free Half and Half
24 small Fresh Strawberries, whole with greens
If you don't have beautiful strawberries, you can use a wedge or slice of a strawberry on top.
Prepare Icing - place softened butter in a large mixing bowl and beat on low until smooth and creamy. Add Powdered Sugar 1 cup at a time, beating until smooth between each addition. Add the Rum Extract and Red Food Coloring and beat until completely incorporated. Add the Half and Half, as needed, after the powdered sugar is completely added if the consistency is too thick.
After cupcakes are completely cooled, frost the tops of cupcakes. (I piped it on using a star-shaped tip and covered the top of each with a series of small stars that somewhat overlapped)
Slice strawberries about 4 times about 1/8" apart from the tip until almost to the green then fan the strawberry abit and place one atop of each frosted cupcake. To really make it like a cocktail, place a cut-off straw into each cupcake to give the appearance of a drink.
