The adult cupcake. No dirty pictures on these. It's the ingredients, not the decorations, that make these for the 21 and over set only. They're tequila cupcakes from Elizabeth's Cakes in Plano. And I don't know if it's just the power of suggestion or not, but I would swear that I not only tasted the stuff but got a little buzz on too.

OK, fine. I'm a lightweight, and the alcohol likely cooks off in the oven, and it was probably the sugar and not the alcohol that brought the buzz on. But I swear, if you take a deep breath after a nice bite, you'll feel the tequila in the back of your throat.

Regardless, these babies were tasty. Not overly sweet and, interestingly, the moistest of all the other flavors I nibbled at, barring the chocolate tres leches, which was downright oozy. In a good way.

The best part though may be how darling and innocent the little cakes look with light green frosting and a cartoony swirl on top despite their naughty little secret. Kind of like those super sweet girly shooters we used to do on spring break. (Or that we did last Friday. Don't judge.)

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
