Shenanigan's Opening Day - Cinco de Mayo

I play coed softball for a work team called Shenanigan's.  Our colors are Black and Green and our logo is a shamrock!

Last Thursday, on Cinco de Mayo... it was the Shenanigan's opening day... To commemorate the day, and the festivities of Cinco de Mayo, I made Corona and Lime cupcakes. The shamrock on top is not for Cinco de Mayo, but for my Irish Shenanigans!

These were super easy to make, and way yummy.  I cheated and took a box of vanilla cake mix... I added 12 ounces of Corona beer to the mix and stirred.  Let them bake as usual... For the Lime Cream Cheese Frosting I took an 8oz container of whipped cream cheese, about 4 cups of confectioners sugar and a Yoplait Key Lime Yogurt and mixed until smooth and creamy!!!

I topped with some green sugar crystals and the fondant shamrock, and viola... Corona and Lime cupcakes... a little Irish/Mexican mix never hurt anyone! ;-)

They were sticky, but they went over well at the bar after the game.  We sadly lost, but there were a lot of laughs and a that's all that counts!!!
