Description

I usually avoid any dessert with citrus, but these cupcakes are the exception to my rule, in fact, I’m thinking about throwing out the rule because in certain situations, I apparently love lime! This is one of those situations!

Ingredients

  • FOR THE COCONUT CUPCAKES:
  • 1 box White Cake Mix, 18 Oz
  • 1-⅓ cup Water, More Or Less As Directed Cake Mix Package
  • ½ cups Vegetable Oil, More Or Less As Directed On Cake Mix Package
  • 3 whole Eggs, More Or Less As Directed On Cake Mix
  • 1 cup Coconut
  • _____
  • FOR THE LIME FILLING:
  • 1 box Vanilla Instant Pudding, 4 Oz
  • ½ cups Whipping Cream
  • ¼ cups Lime Juice
  • 4 drops Green Food Coloring
  • ½ cups Powdered Sugar
  • _____
  • FOR THE WHITE CHOCOLATE AND LIME ICING:
  • 5 ounces, weight White Chocolate, Melted
  • 1 stick Butter, Softened
  • 3-½ cups Powdered Sugar
  • ⅛ teaspoons Salt
  • ½ teaspoons Vanilla
  • 1 Tablespoon Lime Juice
  • ¼ cups Sour Cream

Preparation

For the Cupcakes:

Prepare as the box directs, and then add 1 cup of shredded coconut to the batter before pouring it into muffin tins. I fill cups with a 1/4 cup measuring cup, and this usually fills about 18 cups.

For the Lime Filling

Pour the box of pudding mix into a bowl, add whipping cream and beat for 2 minutes. Let stand for 3 minutes. Add the rest of the ingredients, and place in fridge to chill.

Hollow a cone out of the top of each cupcake, and add filling inside. Replace cupcake ‘lid’ back over the filling.

*I found this recipe for this filling from Tasty Kitchen contributer, Hoosier Homemade

For the White Chocolate and Lime Icing

Melt chocolate (using the microwave, in 30 minute bursts, stirring between each burst to make sure the chocolate doesn’t burn), and set it aside to cool a little.

While chocolate is cooling, mix the rest of the ingredients. Add chocolate until just combined.

Ice cupcakes and garnish with lime slices, sprinkles, etc.

This is really a very easy cupcake to put together, I just tagged it as intermediate because there are several steps, and the melted chocolate in the icing requires a bit more concentration, a bit…

I made these for a “cupcake wars” party. They were surprisingly easy and won “favorite” and “most creative” cupcake of the night. I ended up substituting the filling with a mixture of key lime juice, cream cheese and sweetened condensed milk because I didn’t have the other ingredients on hand. The entire result was wonderful. Thanks so much!

I made these for a baby shower I had tonight and they were sooo good! The coconut flavor with the lime filling was amazing. The icing was my favorite though by far. It was heavenly! I will be making these again and using the icing far more often then just for these cupcakes.
