I haven’t had a Strawberry Margarita in ages-but I surely remember how good they were–even the virgin variety. These would make the perfect desert for an “adult” party. They look and sound delicious.

Has anyone made the frosting ahead of time and refrigerated? I’m wanting to make them the night before and decorate upon arrival at an event?
