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.
