Cupcake Capers

I had a dessert tea this year and decided to do all desserts as a cupcake! I will be showing each and putting recipe here. I do not have all sources of recipes so will try to find them.

National Margarita Day

Today, February 22, 2010 is National Margarita Day. What does this have to do with tea you ask? Well I found a few tea margarita recipes on the net..
Tea Margarita
For each glass, you will need:
1 lime or lemon wedge
sugar to coat rim of glasses
1/2 to 2/3 cup of strongly brewed Teavana lemon green tea frozen into 6 to 8
small ice cubes in the freezer
2 1/2 tablespoons (1 1/4 ounces) premium tequila such as Cuervo or Patron
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon Cointreau or Grand Marnier
2 tablespoons sugar
Rub the lime wedge around the rim of an old-fashioned glass. Dip and rotate the rim in the saucer of sugar, making sure to keep the sugar on the outside. In a blender, combine the green tea ice cubes, tequila, lemon juice, Cointreau, and sugar. Blend on the pulse setting until slushy. Pour into the sugar-rimmed glass.

The New Tray
I got this adorable and very functionable tray for Christmas from my oldest daughter and her husband. It is a great, heavy tray with hooks on the back to hang it up. It has wonderful painting and cute little charms all around.
