Coconut Lime Cupcakes

Cupcake Week continues with Coconut Lime Cupcakes!!!

First the whining…

I picked the hottest day in the history of hot days to make cupcakes.
Cause I love you all. Or because I love cupcakes. Which ever.
Really…not smart! But, when it comes to cupcakes…I will suffer alot!

Now the disclaimer…

I do not care about how cupcakes look. Just how they taste.
I have been making an attempt and adding pretty toppings.
But, this cupcake has droopy frosting and not terribly creative toppings.
But, that’s because all the time was spent on the CUPCAKE!
Which, is the important part.

Okay, moving on…

Look at all that droopiness. It didn’t help that it was like 95 degrees in the kitchen.
Everything was drooping.

But oh my these were lovely to sit and enjoy! And I enjoyed!!
I saved you some. But, then they got droopy looking so I rescued them into my belly.
