Foodie Friday Margarita Cupcakes

WoW!!!  These are some sweeeet treats!  Very good but really too sweet, next time I'm gonna cut down on the sugar a bit.  I got this recipe from my BBFF, Christy.  Check out her blog for more fab pictues adn the original is mine with some tweaks made and comments on what I will do differently next time.  I also made cute little tequilla worms and laminated them for each glass.  I, of course, kept them so I will have them to use again!  :)  There is no tequilla in these, but maybe next time!?!

One box white cake mix made according to package directions.  Let cool and tear one up in bottom of margarita glass (mine didn't all match and I din't have enough for everyone and luckily I found some at the Dollar Store!)
Beat (for 2 minutes) together 1 small pkg (4 oz) vanilla instant pudding with 1/2 c. whipping cream, 1/4 c. lime juice, 4 drops green food color, 1/2 c. powdered sugar. Let rest for 3 min, and then place in fridge.
Next time I will make the pudding first, add the whipped cream, lime juice, food coloring and 1/4 C sugar.  The way this was it was more like frosting itself and I'd prefer more more of a pudding filling. 
Melt 5 oz of white chocolate and set aside.
Mix 1 stick of butter (room temperature), 3 1/2 c. powdered sugar, pinch of salt, 1/2 t. salt, 1/2 t. vanilla, 1 T. lime, and 1/4 c. sour cream. Add in chocolate just until combined.
Too sweet for time I will start with 2 1/2 C powdered sugar and 1/2 C sour cream.  I'll add more sugar to taste. 

Garnish edges with green sugar made by adding a couple (3) drops of food coloring to 1 C of sugar.  There was a ton of sugar left over so maybe don't use quite so much.  the top with a lime slice. 
My daughter helped me and we had lots of fun making these!!! :)   Isn't she adorable!!! :)  Love her, love her!
