This was not supposed to be the first post.
It was supposed to be this glorious coconut peach crisp that I was inspired to make a few weeks back. However, said peach crisp unfortunately exploded in my oven - not once, but twice. What was left still tasted good, but was in no way ready for a photo shoot.
I think these make a pretty good substitute.
I love cupcakes. And when I say love, I mean L-O-V-E times a bajillion. They are like single servings of happiness. A friend (who obviously knew of my obsession) sent me to this recipe and I knew I had to try them!
Here's what you will need to get started:
and 1/4 tsp. salt
grab a fork and stir 'em all together.
Mix it all together until it is just incorporated. (Don't over mix! Resist the temptation to beat your batter to death. Trust me.)
Let them cool. Take a walk, watch a tv show, whatever. Just let them cool off before you try to do anything else to them. It's hard, I know. I have a music therapy song about waiting if you simply can't contain yourself.
Once they are nice and cool you can start to make the frosting!
I could eat this whole bowl.....by itself....right now.
But I will contain myself. Partly because I might not be able to live with myself if I downed a whole bowl of frosting and partly because I will have people walking through the door any minute. People who are counting on getting some key lime cupcakes. Must not let them down.
I love limes. and I really love taking pictures of citrus.
