While pregnant with my son, I watched with envy as my husband enjoyed Tequila Sunrises this summer. So, I decided to create a cupcake version that I could enjoy. I wanted to develop my cupcake using the true flavors of a Tequila Sunrise: orange, pomegranate and tequila. (I had learned from the Cupcake Project blog that grenadine was originally made from pomegranates, so I wanted to be true to its origin.) The cupcake combines all three flavors into a delicious summer treat that allows pregnant cupcake lovers to indulge in a Tequila Sunrise!
I recently left my highly stressful, challenging and rewarding job as Human Resources Director for a non-profit organization to take on an equally challenging and rewarding role as stay-at-home mom. During my last batch of cupcakes, my 4-month old son fell asleep sucking on a plastic kitchen spoon rather than a pacifier. Pure bliss in the kitchen!
