Mojito Cupcakes!


I hate to do it to you,  but I’m gonna do it anyway….I’m sharing what I’m calling my Mojito Cupcakes with you. I made these over the weekend and they were described by some as orgasmic. Not bad for a cupcake.

I used this recipe, but instead of adding coconut to the cream cheese icing, I added the zest of 1 lemon and 1 lime. The lemon-lime mixed perfectly with the coconut flavor and made it not too ‘coconutty’. The cake part was a little denser than your usual cupcake, but was super moist. I also doubled the frosting amount, because the original recipe just did not make enough in my opinion…especially since I like a more decoratively iced cupcake.

Overall, the effect was very refreshing and scrumptiously delicious! Make these when you want to impress or when you want to treat yourself.


  1. OMG, no fare!!!!! Those look insanely yummy. Why is it cupcakes are so much better than a slice of cake sometimes???

  2. These sound and look delicious! My sister is a pastry chef and I keep begging her to make me a Mojito key lime pie. Maybe for my birthday… yum!
