Last Night I had a Primary Board Meeting. I really wanted to thank all of the teachers for their many hours of selfless service. So the theme of the meeting was "You Take The Cake". Pictured below is the invitation to the meeting.
For refreshments, we had cupcakes. My good friend Karrie made some delicious Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes and also some White Cupcakes with a Raspberry Filling.
I made Chocolate Cupcakes with a Cream Cheese Candy Cane Filling.
And I also made Coconut Lime Cupcakes.
I practiced making the coconut lime cupcakes until I got them just right.
In fact, I think they were PERFECT!
This is what I did....
COCONUT LIME CUPCAKES
1 Duncan Hines Yellow Cake Mix
3 Large Eggs
1/3 Cup Vegetable Oil
1 Cup Coconut Milk
1/3 Cup Lime Juice
1 Tablespoon Lime Zest
1 Cup Shredded Coconut
Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl at low speed until moistened (about 30 seconds).
Then beat at medium speed for 2 minutes. Fill cupcake liners about 2/3 full. Bake at 350 degrees for 18-21 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.
LIME BUTTER CREAM FROSTING
1/2 Cup Butter
1/2 Cup Shortening
3 Cups Confectioner's Sugar
1 teaspoon Lime Juice
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon Lime Zest
Flaked Coconut for decorating
Beat the butter and shortening until smooth, then add sugar and beat. Add lime juice, vanilla, and lime zest and beat until fluffy. Spread the frosting on cooled cupcakes and top with shredded coconut (I toasted mine).
The board meeting went well, the cupcakes were even better. I hope you give these delicious treats a try!
