Key Lime Cupcakes

I was craving something sweet today, but wanted a fruity, fresh flavor. These were just the thing!

1 box white cake mix
1 container vanilla frosting
14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup key lime or lime juice (took me 4 limes to get that much juice)
3/4 cup whipping cream
4 drops yellow food coloring
1 drop green food coloring

Prepare cupcakes as directed on cake mix box. Allow to cool for 5 minutes.

While cooling, grate lime zest into the vanilla frosting.

Mix together the condensed milk, whipping cream, lime juice and food coloring.

Poke several holes into the cupcakes with the back of a mixing spoon.

Using a pastry bag (or turkey baster if you're like me and don't have one of those), fill each hole with the lime mixture.

It's OK if some of the mix remains on the top. Refrigerate for at least one hour, then frost.

Yum! Fruity, tart, sweet and delicious!
