Coconut Lime Icing

1 cup confections’ sugar
¾ cup sweetened, flaked coconut
3 tablespoons butter, at room temperature
2 tablespoons buttermilk
1 tablespoon lime juice
zest of one lime


In a small bowl, combine butter,zest and sugar throughly. Add buttermilk and lime juice. Mix on high 1 minute until well mixed Spread over cooled cupcakes. Sprinkle each cake with coconut.

My thoughts:
This icing is barely more than a glaze but has a very strong lime flavor. You can see the flecks of zest peeking out when you bite into the cupcake. This icing is excellent on buttermilk lime cupcakes.
