Summer Cupcake Challenge

Posted by Dee Stewart at 12:25 PM
Ok. I am putting a challenge out to myself to produce some summer sweet cupcakes for my daughter Selah and her friends and my girlscout troop. This cupcake diva has been taking a vacaketion since school closed and scouting is on break'til fall. But there are so many cute cupcakes coming out for the summer and my daughter has so many friends with summer birthdays I can't help, but turn on my hot oven. Any nobake cupcake recipes out there? Its 100 degress in Atlanta today.

Check out this summer cc recipe from Cococonut and Lime. I am too hot to cook from scratch so I will deviate a little from this BettyCrocker keylime cupcakes here. Use Martha Stewart's vanilla cupcake batter with some buttermilk and keylime juice instead of the BC box kind and my quick keylime cream icing. It'll be richer, but isn't that a southern thing.

Quick Key Lime Icing

This recipe makes about 1 cup

Ingredients:
2 cups confectioners’ sugar
1/4 cup of soft butter
3 or more teaspoons of Half & Half
Zest of 1 Key Lime
1 Tablespoon of Key Lime juice

Preparation:
Combine the confectioners’ sugar and the softened butter. Blend well.

Adding 1 teaspoon at a time, beat in 3 or more teaspoons of cream or Half & Half.

Add, Key lime zest and juice and fold into the icing.
