Rated 5 out of 5 by messner from I have made this recipe several times and it always gets rave reviews. It has a great tangy, yet light flavor. I've made it as cupcakes and also as a cake using the ribbon pan. I typically use the basic buttercream recipe, at a thin consistency, but substitute lime juice for the water and tint with a few drops of Kelly Green coloring. Then I roll the edge of the iced cupcakes in light green sugar sprinkles to give the effect of a rimmed margarita glass. I've also substituted strawberry daiquiri mix for the lime margarita mix and used a strawberry flavored icing. It also was well received.

Rated 5 out of 5 by msmelc from These were SOO good! I was soo impressed with them. They were light & fluffy... I topped them with the lime buttercream. I 'borrowed' an idea from someone else & put in a cut bendy straw, & a gummy lime candy. They were a HUGE hit. I was happy to see that this recipe ACTUALLY made 24 cupcakes! I used the duncan hines brand (this might be wilton recommended, I am not sure- but there was a reference to it, on the box.??).

Rated 5 out of 5 by Desertdelights from This is a wonderful recipe and a great way to incorporate a little lime flavor into a cupcake. I actually baked it as a cake and it turned out perfectly. I use this recipe when I have a group of adults who may not want chocolate cake. It has a great punch of flavor and is still sweet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dckotten from I first tried this recipe the way it was. I thought the cupcakes were a little dry so I tried using a cake mix with pudding in the mix. I felt the cupcakes were alot better using that cake mix. I have also used this cake battter in a regular cake pan and it works out great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mizkit from I haven't made these yet but they sound perfect to serve when it's my turn to host "girls night" The recipe sounds delicious and I think doctoring the cake mix could not be any easier. I love the idea posted earlier about rolling the edges in sugar!

Rated 5 out of 5 by vinrunner from Loved them. Never made cupcakes before--very simple..the only time consuming part is the lime zest...and that's not too bad. Everyone at work loved them. I also used the key lime frosting on top--yum yum!

Rated 5 out of 5 by hjbaumgard5423 from I love these cupcakes and so does everyone else when I have made them. I used them at my wedding. I rimmed the edge, added a small gummy lime wedge, and inserted a snipped bendy straw. They were a hit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by OSU Deb from These were really good. Got rave reviews from all the tasters. I made mini cupcakes, and garnished the frosting with lime zest. Really cute!
