As a coming home present I decided to whip up a batch of mango-lime cupcakes from my Betty Crocker cupcake book. If it was up to me, I'd only eat chocolate cupcakes but the boy likes fruit so I thought it would be a loving compromise. I love watching shows like Cupcake Girls, DC Cupcakes and Cupcake Wars and always toy with the idea of taking cupcake classes so that I too may master the art of cupcake baking and decorating. But since Le Cordon Bleu classes will run you a few hundred for a couple of hours, my Betty Crocker cookbook and 'I Kiss Better than I Cook' apron will have to do for now.
|Icing: In medium bowl, beat 1/4 cup softened unsalted butter; 2 cups icing sugar; 1/2 tsp grated lime peel and 2 tbsp fresh lime juice with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Ice cupcakes and decorate with grated lime peel.|
