|Margarita cupcakes in cups|
Last Thursday was my boyfriend's brother's 50th birthday. He came into town from Las Vegas to celebrate with family and friends. The family threw him a Nueve de Mayo celebration.
|Pete turned the big 5-0!|
For our contribution to the fiesta my mother and I made desserts. She made Mexican spiced fudge brownies, Mexican chocolate snickerdoodles, and dulce de leche cheesecake bars. The cookies didn't excite me. The brownies were pretty darn good (and I'm not a brownie person) they were gone quick. The dulce de leche bars turned out good too. I was surprised when I tried one. I wasn't a fan of the individual components but they came together nicely. I don't know what I was thinking. I didn't get a picture of any of her desserts!

I made margarita cupcakes and ice cream tacos. I thought the cupcakes turned out really good. I used this cupcake recipe from the blog Tide and Thyme and this frosting recipe from the blog The Kitchen is My Playground. The ice cream tacos were a hit. They actually looked like tacos! and they tasted good.

Pete had a nice birthday and got a chance to visit with his friends and family.
