Doesn’t that dinner party menu sound amazing?

I can’t wait to try it all!

To do my part, I’m making the dessert with some boozy cupcakes!

The Rumchata adds a nice creamy texture to the batter.

And I don’t know about you, but do you always over pour the first cupcakes too?

I do that every time!

Did I mention that Rumchata goes in both the cake batter AND the icing?

It is so yummy!

You can mix it with either a hand or regular mixer.

And the hand mixer is just that!

Tip: when you pour the batter into the tins, try to pour it as evenly as possible.

This will help the cupcakes bake evenly and be similar in size.

Since these cupcakes are made with Rumchata, add a fun straw or something that resembles a straw.

For this dish, I used vanilla Pirouette Cookies.
