Orange Lime Coconut Cupcakes

Yum

How do you get those Irish eyes a smilin'?
Bake them some cupcakes of course!

I am not a huge corned beef and cabbage fan, much to my husband's dismay.  So, I always find other ways to celebrate St. Patrick's Day like these cute spring flavored cupcakes in the colors of the Irish flag!  Can't get more Irish than that!



An orange flavored cake layer followed by a lime flavored cake layer and topped with a buttercream icing that is coated in coconut.  Spring...check.  St. Patrick's Day...check.  Yumminess...check. 
I think we are all good to go!


Ingredients to make 24:
1 box white cake mix (16.25 ounces)
1 1/4 cup milk
2/3 cup melted butter
3 whole eggs
2 Tbsp lime juice
3 Tbsp orange juice
green food coloring
red food coloring
yellow food coloring
Ingredients for frosting:
2 sticks unsalted butter
2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup coconut
3 drops of green food coloring
Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line a muffin pan with cupcake liners of spray with nonstick spray.
Beat cake mix, milk, melted butter and eggs until well combined.  Divide the batter in half.  In one bowl of batter add lime juice.  Stir in 6 drops of green food coloring.  Set aside.  In other bowl of batter, add orange juice.  Stir in 5 drops of red food coloring and 8 drops of orange food coloring.
Spoon orange batter into 1/4 of the muffin cup.  Spoon green batter on top.  Bake at 350 degrees for 14-19 minutes.  Remove from oven and cool.  Using a mixer, beat butter, powdered sugar, milk and vanilla extract.  Frost the cooled cupcakes.  Place coconut and drops of green food coloring into a plastic bag.  Shake until coconut has turned green.  Sprinkle on top of cupcakes.

  
When Irish eyes are smiling, surely like a day in Spring!
Bring it on!

  2. It's a great pleasure for me to write this testimony about how I got my Herpes virus cured a week ago. I have been reading so many comments of some people who were cured from various diseases by Dr. Kham but i never believed them. I was hurt and depressed so I was too curious and wanted to try DR. Kham then contacted him through his email, he assured me 100% that he will heal me, I pleaded with him to help me out. My experience with him was great, he healed me just as he promised. He sent me his medication and asked me to go for a medical check up after two weeks of usage. I agreed with him. I took this medication and went for a check up, to my greatest surprise my result was negative, i am really happy that i am cured and healthy again. I have waited for 5 days to be very sure I was completely healed before writing this testimony. I did another blood test one week ago and it was still Herpes Negative. so i guess its time i recommend anyone going through the same way. reach him through his email address: dr.khamcaregiver@gmail.com OR call, add him on Whatsapp +2348159922297 You can also check his Blog at https://drkhamcaregiver.blogspot.com/

  4. Herpes has been one of the most significant virus in the US now, and its spreading really fast, and the government are only producing medical drugs that can suppress it but rather keep on eliminating the African herbal doctors who were able to discover a way to completely cure the virus...I'm delighted to be finally cured of herpes 2 after i applied doctor Oyagu herbal medicine for two weeks ,,, I can tell you, I went back a month later to confirm my status and i was still negative.. If i could get cured, why do you think You can't?, you believe in the lying government and medical scientists and keep spending money on buying their stupid pills.. I'm glad I am finally cured from it forever...apply oyaguherbalhlm@gmail.com herbal formula.
