Line conventional size cupcake pan with paper liners. Mix cake according to manufacturer’s instructions then use a #16 blue scoop to deposit 1.5 oz batter into each cavity. Bake at 350°F until cupcakes spring back lightly when touched. Let cool completely. Mix together tequila flavoring and key lime filling to desired taste, reserve. Mix together 5 pounds buttercreme, 1 oz lime juice, and 0.5 oz tequila flavoring, reserve. Using a very small round cutter, cut the center out of each cupcake. Fill the cavity with prepared lime filling. Place buttercream in piping bag fitted with a closed star tip and pipe a rosette on the top of each cupcake. Roll the edges in sanding sugar (to look like the rim of a margarita glass) and top with a slice of lime.
