|Lemon-lime cupcake with lime cream-cheese frosting|
It's cold and dreary out today, like we're living inside a ping pong ball. I'm finding myself gravitating towards tropical foods as winter drags on - tropical foods feel like sunshine.
To combat the winter dreariness, I made lemon-lime cupcakes this morning. I used a lemon-flavored cake mix and zipped it up a bit with fresh lime zest and juice.
|Cold and blustery outside - warm and cozy inside|
|12 cupcakes, ready for the oven|
These 12 large cupcakes baked for 20 minutes.
|allow to cool for a few minutes, then remove from pan and continue to cool|
|Cream cheese frosting|
In a medium bowl, mix butter and cream cheese until combined. Add lime zest and juice from the lime. Mix to combine.
Continue to add powdered sugar. I used a standard ice cream scoop to portion out the frosting for the 12 cupcakes.
|I didn't do anything fancy, just used a knife to spread the frosting around a bit|
Why did I not know about the inside-out cupcake? This makes so much sense! I'm watching my daughter break her cupcake in two horizontally and wondering what she's up to know? And then I "see"!!! She turned the top upside down and now she has a cupcake sandwich! According to Kathrin, "everybody" knows about this. How about you, did you know? I'm going to lay down now, I've just learned something new today!
