    Very LIMEY! Love the glaze! I used extra lime juice in the glaze for even more flavor. These turned out great, cooking time was right on. I didn't add food coloring, and the cake turned out a loved limey color. Great recipe! Everybody loved them! ZWT7 - Shady Ladies

    Key Lime pie is one of my faves, so anything with Key Lime in the title intrigues me. These did not disappoint! Lovely, tart limey flavor with the rich sweet taste of cream cheese frosting. And such a lovely color! I only used one drop of green color. Also, I only had a 12-cup pan, so I made the rest in a loaf pan. Forgot to photo the actual cupcakes before I stuck them in the freezer, so I used the loaf cake. Thanks! Made for ZWT7 Count Dracula and His Hot Bites
