Candied Lime Peels

In my experimenting last weekend, I searched to find "a look" for my cakes, especially the Coconut Cream Cupcakes that are usually topped with Coco-Lime Buttercream Frosting or Coco-Lime Whipped Cream. I knew I wanted the topper to be green and could not think of anything better than a Candied Lime peel . Cupcakes and recipe below. Voila! 

How to Make a Candied Lime Peel


  • 1 cup lime peel, cut into strips
  • 0. 5  cup white granulated sugar
  • 0. 25 cup water

  1. Place peel strips in large saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes longer. Drain. Repeat this process two more times.
  2. In a medium saucepan, heat sugar and 0. 25 cup water over high heat until boiling. Place peel in sugar mixture, reduce heat and simmer 15 minutes, until sugar is dissolved. Remove peel with  slotted spoon and dry on wire rack overnight. Store in airtight container. [Adapted from a recipe on ]
