Have you taken a look at your calendar recently? Next week is the beginning of May. MAY! The sun is shining longer, the temperature is rising (most of the time) and getting outside is becoming more of a given instead of a maybe. Thank goodness! I was about to start a petition to rename Ohio the Land of Eternal Winter.
You know what else May brings? Cinco de Mayo! The perfect excuse to grab your favorite frosty beverage, a few tacos and a cupcake. Yes, a cupcake. Specifically one of THESE cupcakes.
Yes, I’ve been cooking with beer again…

The inspiration behind this tasty treat? A jar of Key Lime Curd & Tart Filling from Robert Rothschild Farm. Is it wrong that when I was thinking of what goes well with lime I immediately thought of a beer? One jar is the exact amount of filling needed for two dozen cupcakes. Coincidence? I think not!
I’m not sure which part of this cupcake is my favorite – the Corona cupcake, the lime curd filling or the coconut frosting. Lucky for me I don’t have to choose and can enjoy them all in a single bite!
