This coming 5th of May, we all have one very big decision to make - Margarita or Mint Julep?
Cinco de Mayo, a celebration with history lost amongst most has turned into a great reason to drink margaritas and eat a variety of Mexican dishes. Desserts themed for this particular occasion vary from churros to flan – which all sound extremely delicious translated into a cupcake version.
Now it is a rare occasion that the Kentucky Derby – typically held on the first Saturday of May each year, also takes place on Cinco de Mayo. So with this conundrum in place – the big question remains margarita or mint julep?
Obviously from the photos here, you can see that I’ve chosen to cheers to the Kentucky Derby switching out my sombrero for a fancy floppy hat, and my margarita glass for a silver julep cup.
These cupcakes were inspired by the rush and excitement of the Kentucky Derby, “The Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports” is now “The Most Delicious Two Bite Mini Cupcake.”
Cheers to all my cupcakes, May you celebrate the day in whichever way makes you smile!
