Beer Cupcakes (Corona/Blue Moon)

Beer...cupcakes...Super Bowl. 'Nough said!!!

 


The following recipe makes 24 cupcakes. I split the dough and frosting in half and made 12 of each. I personally liked the Corona ones the best, but the Blue Moon cupcakes are a very close second. 

 


I also got to use my new cupcake liners. Adorable!


Beer Cupcakes (Corona/Blue Moon):
3/4 c. butter, at room temperature
1.75 c. sugar
2.5 c. flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
3 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. (lime/orange) zest
1 c. (Corona/Blue Moon) beer, plus more for brushing on tops
1/4 c. milk
(Lime/orange) wedges for garnish

Frosting:
12 oz cream cheese, cold
6 Tbsp. butter, at room temperature
