I love these cupcakes! They are a hot seller in the summer time also. A must try.

I made these cupcake today, they are so good!!! The lime gives cuts the sweetness and the coconut give it great texture! One of the best cupcake I have had!

Maizey you're right! I think I will love these too. I make a coconut cupcake that looks really similar, but I can't wait to try the lime. Thanks for posting and inspiring me to continue my addition to cupcakes.
