2. In a large bowl, mix together lime juice, lime zest, soy milk, oil, tequila, vanilla, potato starch and sugar.

3. In a bowl, measure flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.  Whisk or sift together to ensure they are thoroughly combined.

4. Add dry ingredients to lime mixture and stir until just combined.

5. Gently fold fresh raspberries into the batter with a rubber spatula.

6.  Pour into paper liners.  Fill three-quarters of the way to the top.

Yield:12 Cupcakes

Tequila Lime Frosting


1/4 cup salted butter, room temperature

1 tablespoon soy milk

3 tablespoons lime juice

1 tablespoon tequila

2 cups, plus more if needed, of powdered sugar


1. Beat together butter, milk, lime juice, tequila, and 2 cups of powdered sugar until smooth and creamy.

2. If the frosting is too thin, wait for 5 minutes.   It will thicken.

3. Spread the frosting on cupcakes.

These are some of the best cupcakes that I have ever made.  I am also a fan of raspberries.  If you do not like them, you should substitute your favorite fruit or maybe use half of the amount.  I am really pleased with the results.

Tonight is the Britney Spears Glee!  I can hardly contain my excitement.  B Spears is one of my favorites of all time and I am not ashamed to admit it!  I don't really want to go to class, I hate that feeling.  I know I need to go, so I will.  However, it is such a pretty day I would like to be out enjoying it.
