Mojito Poke Cupcakes


1 box white cake mix

1 cup water

3 egg whites

1/3 cup oil

Juice from 2 limes

Zest from 1 lime

1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk

2-3 tablespoons white rum (or adjust according to desired taste)

1 Container butter cream or white icing.

Limes and fresh mint for garnish


Prepare cake mix according to package directions. Add juice of 2 limes, and the zest of one lime.

Once cooked, allow the cupcakes to cool for about 10 minutes. In a small bowl, whisk together the condensed milk and the rum. (Add more rum for stronger flavor.)

After 10 minutes, use a skewer to poke holes in your cupcakes. Slowly pour or brush the milk and rum mixture over the cake. Refrigerate the cake for at least 1 hour to allow the milk to be absorbed by the cake. Frost the cupcakes and garnish with lime slices, sprigs of mint and decorative sugar sprinkles.
