Sex and The City II Cupcakes

Two years ago when the first Sex and the City movie came out a group of us went to see it and have dinner. We couldn't wait for II to come out.  Today a few of the same girlfriends and I went to see Sex and the City II.  Our plan was to go see the movie & then go to a late lunch after.  Kim from The Tomkat Studio made this recipe and it looked like something I could do fairly quickly.  I made my Margarita Buttercream recipe, using Vodka & Cosmo mixer instead of tequila.  We left them in the car while we watched the movie with 75+ degree weather... probably not the best idea but they still looked ok..the buttercream just melted a little bit.  They hit the spot after our lunch at Joe's Crabshack.

Thanks girls for a fabulous afternoon!


• 1 box Vanilla Cake Mix
• 3 egg whites
• 1/3 cup oil
• 1-1/4 cups ready-made Cosmo drink mixer (I used Stirrings from Cost Plus)
• 2 tbsp lime zest

Directions: Make cupcakes according to box directions, swapping out 1-1/4 cups Cosmopolitan drink mix for the 1-1/4 cups water called for on the box.

COSMO BUTTERCREAM:  adapted from my Margarita Buttercream
 (will frost 3 dozen cupcakes with a spatula or 18 piping)
• 1 cup unsalted butter, softened (2 sticks)
• 2 Tbsp lime juice
• 2 Tbsp Cosmo drink mixer
• 2 Tbsp vodka
• 1 tsp lime zest (I omitted this)
• 5 cups confectioners' sugar, sifted
• Red or pink gel icing colors (a little red gel will make hot pink)
Sprinkles or decorations


Using an electric mixer, beat the butter until creamy. Add in 2 cups confectioners' sugar. Add in the cosmo mix, vodka and 4 tablespoons lime juice, 1 teaspoon vanilla, lime zest and the food coloring until smooth and creamy. Beat in the remaining 3 cups confectioners' sugar one-third at a time, until just soft enough to spread.

Spread or pipe icing onto each (completely cooled) cupcake. Garnish with sprinkles.
