I want to make lime cake, and/or cupcakes for a friends bridal shower. I would like to use shaved coconut on the cupcakes, but haven't really found the perfect recipe yet.

Any suggestions?

Thanks (0:

Use your favorite white cake and replace the liquid with key lime juice (you can find it bottled usually in the juice or baking aisle). You can add some lime zest for extra kick. Tastes great & is super easy!

I use the WASC recipe and substitute the liquis for key lime juice (bottled) and then add some lime zest to the mix. I also fill with lime curd, its sooooo yummy! Like key lime pie in a cake! You could top it with Creamy Coconut BC and then add your shaved coconut on top. I think that would turn out super yummy! Good Luck!!

I use this recipe for Lime Ricky cake. I don't do the raspberry topping, just the lime cake. It's a very nice, sturdy texture with an distinct, assertive, yet not overpowering lime flavor.

No Problem, here they are!

Lime Curd:
1 1/2 teaspoons lime zest
6 tablespoons key lime juice (bottled)
1 large egg, plus 1 large egg yolk
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into bits

Make lime curd: In the top of a double boiler, combine lime zest, key lime juice, egg, egg yolk, and sugar or sugar substitute over gently simmering water. Whisk until hot and frothy, about 5 minutes. Gradually whisk in butter and continue whisking for 7 minutes or until thickened and coats back of spoon. Remove from heat and cool for 30 minutes.

For BC, I use indydebi's BC recipe and just substitute coconut milk for the milk portion and put in a little coconut and vanilla extract.

Thanks so much! They sound fantastic! I can't wait to try them out! Too bad I am swamped this weekend, or I would be on it! (0: Thanks again!

I couldn't wait to try a key lime pie cupcake. I mixed up the WASC recipe with key lime juice for the water and added about a teaspoon of lime rind. I filled it with the lime curd recipe from dinascakes. I think I didn't cook it long enough though because it was super runny, even after cooling. I topped them with IndyDebi's buttercream recipe using unsweetened coconut milk as the milk, and a tablespoon of homemade vanilla extract (no coconut extract at home). I topped them with toasted coconut. DELICIOUS!! icon_biggrin.gif

Thanks for all the help on this one ladies. It was a hit!! thumbs_up.gif
