Coconut and Lime cupcakes revisited.

I love coconut and lime, it's a classic combination and one which goes down well on most palletes. I first made these cuppies last year, and I thoroughly enjoyed them. So when I decided to bake some cupcakes for Comic Relief, coconut and lime cupcakes were one out three flavours that I made. My cupcakes went down a storm at work, and were the fastest selling cupcakes at my cake sale. Although I posted the recipe last year, I have taken a whole load of new pics for my latest coconut and lime cupcakes, which I topped with coconut and lime buttercream, desiccated coconut and honeycomb pieces.
Here is how my coconut and lime cupcakes turned out:

I first started by soakiing the coconut in hot water and placed aside.

I then creamed the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy.

I then added one egg at a time and alternated this with the flour.

Once all the ingredients were combined, I placed in 12 cupcake cases and baked for 20 minutes. Once baked, I left the cupcakes to cool and made the buttercream.
My previous blog post is much more in depth than this one, the recipe can be found here. The biggest difference is that with these cupcakes, I added the juice of 1/2 lime in the buttercream and topped with honeycomb, which gave my cakes a further flavour dimension.
