Colina Colada Horchata Cupcakes

Updated: Aug 30, 2018

Horchata flavored cake with a kick of spice and cinnamon with a boozy frosting.

These horchata flavored cupcakes are so good that the surprise spice that covers your tongue when you bite into it will have you craving for more. I made a basic white cake, added 2 cups of Colina Colada horchata liqueur and brushed cinnamon and sugar on top of it after I lathered it in warm butter first. I know, I know, just wipe the drool from your mouth. Then I prepared the frosting and put a good amount of Colina Colada in my famous vanilla buttercream. Just because I like my cupcakes to look picture worthy, I sprinkled a little cinnamon on top of each one and made you love me even more by adding a small shot of the rum into the cupcake to either drink or squeeze into the cake for that extra kick.

My work here was done. Now all I had to do was sit down by the pool and enjoy my horchata cupcake and Colina Colada while I shook up some of this sun before summer officially comes to an end.
