Coconut Lime Cupcakes

These coconut lime cupcakes are the perfect summer cupcake!!!

This is definitely a summer cupcake.  We don’t always think of cupcakes when we think of summertime, but that will change when you get one taste of this coconut lime cupcake.  It is light, fluffy, and zesty.  It just screams summer to me! Although, anything coconut and lime screams summer to me. I’m a big fan of this flavor combo!
