Food Finds

A few simple ingredients are all that are needed to make Lemon Lime in the Coconut Cupcakes. In fact, we found several new to me “Food Finds” that I used for this recipe. If you’re new to Turnips 2 Tangerines you might be thinking, “What the heck is a Food Find?” A “Food Find” is any food related product that we have used here on Turnips 2 Tangerines and simply “love.”  A product that we feel deserves to be shared with you, our loyal readers:)

 For This Recipe

For this recipe we used three “Food Finds.” One package Pillsbury Supreme Key Lime Cake Mix, one container Pillsbury Key Lime Frosting and one can Wilderness Lemon Pie Filling. We have also include the ‘recipe’ for how to tint coconut. We tinted the coconut yellow using AmeriColor gel food coloring. All of the “Food Finds” we found are super fantastic.
