Did you know that the tradition of Cinco de Mayo is more popular in the United States than it is in Mexico? Most people believe it is the Mexican day of Independence but it’s actually not! The holiday was created to commemorate the Battle of Pueblo, Mexico and is celebrated with traditional Mexico food and heritage. The good news is it’s still a fun day to invite your friends over and celebrate with some Cinco de Mayo cupcakes and traditional Mexican food.
We’ve been stockpiling cupcake recipes for the holiday and so far margarita cupcakes and churro cupcakes are definitely our favorites. These festive cupcakes will go great with our Spanish tile cupcake wrappers in bright colors. Red, orange and yellow are always popular. Pair with Mexican paper decorations, tissue paper pom poms and plenty of metal lanterns. We would be curious to see if salted caramel cupcakes would be popular for the holiday. Do you have any special plans for the holiday? We’d love to hear about your ideas for Cinco de Mayo. Tell us on our Facebook page and start stocking up on your ingredients for some killer Cinco de Mayo cupcakes!
