I love to make Cupcakes!
I mean after all, they are just a miniature
version of cake. I love the idea of having
all of my favorite flavors of cakes in
a individual size portion.
Besides it keeps me on track with
the whole "portion Control" issue. (lol)
Key lime is one of my husbands favorite flavor
in pie....so naturally I needed to make up
a cake for him!
