Key Lime Cupcake : Free and Easy Bake-Along #13


I like this event, it is kind of fun to bake along with other bloggers who has the same passion in baking..
I have yet to make any cupcakes with frosting in this Aspiring Baker month, this recipe just come at the right time. Love the key lime cream cheese frosting in this recipe, but need to reduce the sugar amount as we found the cupcake is way too sweet for our tastebud.
