Key Lime Cupcakes

I am so excited to be a part of the Mother's Day Kitchen Aid Mixer Giveaway. This giveaway is organized by Allison and Jess of Triple Chocolate Kitchen (https://triplechocolatekitchen.com - formerly The PinterTest Kitchen) They organized all of us and boy, I am so happy!

Someone is going to win this gorgeous and wonderful KitchenAid Mixer. I hope it is one of my readers, but it won't be if you don't enter! Come on! Someone is going to win! I hope it is YOU.
I have owned a KitchenAid mixer now for nearly 30 years. The same one. It is white. I would love to have one of those cool printed one, or a pink one. #FoodBloggerGoals

One of the requirements is for us to share a recipe. I made these Key Lime Cupcakes that I made over the years. It's not one of my original recipes, but of course, I have tweaked it over and over. I hope you love it. I always make this recipe into cupcakes. I like to dip their tops into the glaze. It makes a perfectly round circle.

Here are the details for the giveaway:

  • One winner will get KitchenAid Classic Series Stand Mixer (winner chooses black or white).
  • Open worldwide to readers who are 18+ except where prohibited. If the winner is not from the U.S., they will receive an Amazon gift card in the value of the mixer to order themselves.
  • The giveaway runs from 12:01 am on May 1 to 11:59 PM on May 12. All times are in EST.
