I like to have a cupcake now and then, but I have never been one to get overly excited about the prospect of trying a new cupcake flavor or visiting a "cupcake botique." That was then - this is now. About a year ago I saw an episode of Food Network's Ultimate Recipe Showdown, and the challenge was cupcakes. One of the competitors was a dentist, so I was rooting (no pun intended) for her to win :). She didn't, but I printed off her recipes to try anyway, because I think she should have won. I made her Lemony Sunshine Cupcakes right away, and they were delightful. I have made them several times since. But last week I finally made the Key Lime Coconut Cupcakes With White Chocolate Frosting, and let me tell you I am soooooo glad I did! These cupcakes are my favorite cupcake ever!!!! If you make them you definitely want to use real key limes. I found a one pound bag of them at WalMart for only $1.23. I only needed half the bag. Not only do they taste DIVINE, but the colors are fabulous!! If you visit my home you'll know how much I adore the color lime green!! Trust me you should give them a try - you'll be glad you did!
