Key Lime Cupcakes

In celebration of my sister-in-law’s Summer birthday, I wanted to make a special dessert.  I recall her liking key lime pie, so I decided to find a cake recipe that would be similar, and stumbled upon this Betty Crocker recipe online while looking for ideas.

Initially I was hesitant to try this recipe, as it called for a box of lime Jello.  I’ve never liked lime flavored Jello, or other bright green fake flavored foods, but took a risk on this one.  It was well worth it!  The recipe has simple ingredients, including a box of lemon flavored cake mix, so it’s not 100% homemade…  The glaze, made with fresh lime juice and confectioners sugar, and the homemade cream cheese frosting really make these cupcakes flavorful.  I would definitely make this recipe again!
