I made some Key Lime Cupcakes at my Stamp Classes this month, and many wanted the recipe. I have been using many of Laurie’s recipes from her blog, Stamping Up North. You can find many YUMMY recipes on her blog. (PLUS they’re cute “scrapbooky style”!)NOTE: This is a picture of the what the cupcakes kind of look like, I found it on the internet. (Mine weren’t quite as pretty as this one!!) I didn’t put green foodcoloring in mine, but I think it looks even more summery this way! Also my frosting wasn’t quite as thick as this. I just had to add a picture, though, to make it look like a more interesting blog entry. LOL
