Graduation!

I can't believe I'm actually done with school! This weekend we had our graduation ceremony Friday night followed by champagne and cake with the roommates and our families. Then Saturday we had a little get together at the big red house to celebrate more!
Red Raspberry cake from Cecilia's!

So for our party Saturday I decided to try out a new recipe for lime cupcakes.
You start by zesting and juicing 4 limes (this is more work than it sounds, but its worth it!)
I skipped pictures on some of the steps because we were rushing around to finish everything Sat morning before the party, but it is a pretty simple buttermilk batter, but with 2 tablespoons lime zest and 4 tablespoons lime juice for the perfect light lime flavor! They baked up perfect, light and airy but still moist! And a sweet lime green color that I knew would go perfect (flavor and color-wise) with raspberry buttercream! I topped them off with a little extra lime zest and they were perfect bite sized sweets for the party! With the help of all the roommates and our families the party came together quite nicely! We had a great time eating drinking and visiting with friends, a perfect way to end our college years! Here's to the next chapter!
