It was Ferrit's friend Tiara's birthday in the weekend and so she decided to make her some birthday cupcakes. After stumbling across a vegan cupcake cookbook she found the perfect recipe to compliment their mexican dinner.............. Mucho Margarita Cupcakes. Ferrit was a little hesitant when she read the ingredients which included soy milk, lime zest and juice, tequila and vanilla but she thought she'd give it a go anyway.

Ferrit was pleasantly suprised when the little patty pans of mixture puffed up like cupcakes should and wanted to share the successful recipe with her friends so they could all enjoy the delights of vegan margarita cupcakes
