Peach Mojito Cupcakes + Free Printable Liners

absolutely love peach season! When I was younger, I lived in South Carolina so peaches were a summer staple. These peach mojito cupcakes are the perfect combination of my love for peaches and mojito cocktails! Add in some free printable cupcake liners to jazz up the sweet treats and you’re ready for a party! You could even style up an entire peach-themed summer party (or baby shower!) which I think would be fabulously delish.

I’ve been growing mint each year in my backyard, and I have to say, it’s one of the easiest plants to grow. Not only that, but it makes the perfect garnish for these peach mojito cupcakes. So even if you have a black thumb, plant some mint. Trust me, it’s hard to kill. You’ll find yourself using it for cocktails and food too! Yum!

Looking for another fantastic summer cupcake, we got to a very unusual place for food bloggers, the site ForRent.com. Maybe you will ask yourself what do cupcakes have to do with renting an apartment but believe it or not, on this great site, we found a guest post written by Courtney from Pizzazzerie for really delicious Mojito Cupcakes.

And what to say about them – peaches, mint and lime? Really, all the ingredients for a beautiful summer dessert! And if you maybe imagined them like a treat for a party, with the recipe for this delicious cupcake, you will find some printable liners. Really fantastic!!! It leaves us with nothing else but to thank Courtney for everything she gave us in this post!
