Key Lime Sublime.

After a successful attempt at mini Key Lime Mousse Pies, I needed another project to incorporate my left-over lime curd.  Solution?  Key Lime Cupcakes!!  The combination of the tang of the lime and simple vanilla cake and buttercream was absolutely delicious and light.  

I topped half the cuppies with shredded coconut.  I adore the look, but personally can't stand the texture =) 

For the non-coconut lovers, like myself, I topped the fluffy vanilla buttercream with a simple fondant flower.

Filling the cupcakes:
To fill the cupcakes, I cut a cone of cake out of the top of each cupcake.  I filled each cup with approximately 1 1/2 teaspoons of Key lime curd before replacing their caps and icing with vanilla buttercream.
