Key Lime Cupcakes + A Tieks Giveaway!!
Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend and are ready for another week, inching closer and closer to summer. Spring is truly in the air even for those of us in the NorthEast and there is no better way to celebrate Spring than with pastel cupcakes and flats!!
That’s right, I have a special post for you today!! In addition to the recipe for these lovely key lime cupcakes, I partnered with Tieks and three of my favorite blogger friends to bring you a chance to win a pair of Tieks flats!!
What are Tieks you ask? Well they are just about the prettiest flats around town and the most comfortable! I came across these designer flats made of the finest Italian leather thanks to the Internet and instantly fell in love with the array of bright colors. I couldn’t help myself and had to get one. What can I say, I get weak in the knees for pretty shoes!
They are a bit more pricey than I would normally go for flats, but the fact that they are flexible, colorful, extremely comfortable and that I’ve not worn any of my other flats to work in a month make them worth every penny. And now I want one in every color!
Inspired by the beautiful colors of their Spring collection, I created these key lime cupcakes. You already know that I am on a key lime kick after this coconut key lime panna cotta last week so these cupcakes were a natural leap since they just scream Spring (and Mother’s Day) to me. Starting with a fluffy white cupcake recipe, I infused fresh key lime zest and juice into the cupcakes and then topped with a sweet key lime buttercream. If you love key limes, then these cupcakes will become an easy favorite.
Just look at all the pretty colors?? Love love EVERYTHING pastel right now. I know…I do have a problem but I am OK with it 🙂 These cupcakes will be perfect for any celebrations you have this Spring. If you decide to double the recipe, use 1 egg and 5 egg whites.
