Raspberry Mojito Cupcakes

So… the idea for a these Raspberry Mojito Cupcakes was born! The cake is packed full of lime flavor including sugar that was infused with oils of lime zest and freshly squeezed lime juice. The raspberry filling was made with rum and reduced over heat to cook off all the alcohol. Topping the cupcake is a mint buttercream which is whipped to airy perfection. The entire cupcake is topped with a fresh mint sprig and a whole raspberry.
