I've seen recipes suggesting the use of gelatin (e.g., lime gelatin for margarita flavored cupcakes).  Wouldn't the  gelatin make a cake too sweet for adults?  I'm assuming much more so than the use of a box of pudding.  Yes?  No?  Thoughts?   ???  I've used the Bacardi frozen mixer for the margarita cupcakes but found it sweetened the cupcakes too much for my taste so I'm looking for a different recipe.  Any suggestions?

AGrated lime zest. Get yourself a Microplane to do the job. I've had mine for at least 15 years and it makes a huge difference when grating citrus zests.

Thank you!  I put the zest in my frosting last time, and sprinkled on top for color.  LOVE fresh citrus.  It almost makes me forget about chocolate.  icon_smile.gif

AForget about chocolate? Do you feel okay?
