You put de lime in de coconut, you drank ’em both up.
I think it’s pretty obvious that I’m a soap maker, but what’s not obvious is I’m obsessive about it.
Seriously. I spend hours browsing all of the different supply websites on the lookout for new ingredients to try. And most of that time, I’m trying to decide between at least 10 different fragrances that I simply must have right then.
The fact that I can narrow it down to that few should be counted as a heroic feat. There are literally thousands of different fragrances available. Want hay scented soap? Yep, there’s a fragrance for that. How about wasabi? Uh-huh. Or bacon? Just check out this post here.
But the one I’m having a hard time resisting right now: Coconut Lime.
I haven’t bought it, yet. I already had way too much in my cart the last time to justify adding something else. But there will be a coconut lime soap in the Etsy shop (gratuitous link to the shop here) sometime in the future. Look for it!
Which brings me to these cupcakes. Considering that I just placed an order for soap supplies Friday, I think you know exactly what was on my mind. And it wasn’t carrot cake (by the way, there’s a fragrance for that, too).
Enter ginger coconut lime cupcakes.
Which are amazingly delicious with just a hint of tartness.
And of course, ea-zzy to make!
Top with a little toasted coconut and a lime, and you have some tasty treats.
And a lime, and you have some tasty treats.
Or even better, forget the lime and instead place a couple of small candy eggs on top and you’ve got bird’s nest cupcakes. Perfect for Easter!
