Corona Cupcakes

We made these cupcakes for Super Bowl and I'm thinking of recreating them for an upcoming Cinco de Mayo gathering.  You may substitute the Corona for Blue Moon beer and use orange juice and zest rather than lime.
1 box of Yellow Cake mix
1/2 cup Corona beer
3 Tbsp Vegetable Oil
2 Large Eggs
1 (8 oz) pkg. Cream Cheese
1 cup Confectioners Sugar
Zest of one Lime
Juice of 1 Lime


Combine cake mix, beer, oil, and eggs in a mixer.  Pour into greased cupcake liners and bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 to 20 minutes or until done.  My oven is a little off and it always takes longer to bake things in it.
While the cupcakes are baking, mix softened cream cheese, powdered sugar, and juice until well incorporated.  Add zest at the end and stir just until mixed in. 
Frost cooled cupcakes with cream cheese icing and garnish with zest.

Never tried a Blue Moon...I'll give it a try, thanks.
