Preheat oven to 350.  Line mini muffin cups with paper liners.  Combine graham cracker crumbs, honey granules and vanilla oil together.  Place 1 teaspoon of crumbs into each muffin cup pressing them down gently into bottom of cup.   Bake for 5 minutes until lightly golden.  Remove from oven.  Prepare cake mix according to package directions, using the lime oil.  Place a scant 1 tablespoon of batter into each mini muffin cup.  Sprinkle graham cracker crumbs over top of batter.  Bake for 12-15 minutes until tops are firm and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.  Cool.  Stir the sweetened condensed milk and lime juice together and pour the mixture into a squeeze bottle.  Place the tip of the squeeze bottle into the center of each cupcake.  Press the tip about ¾ of the way into the cupcake and squeeze a small amount of the key lime filling into the cake.  The filling should just come to the top of the cupcake.  Combine the heavy cream, crème fraiche and powdered sugar together in a large mixing bowl.  Whip to medium stiff peaks.  Gently fold in balsamic vinegar.  Transfer mixture to a piping bag or large ziplock bag and pipe small mounds of cream mixture on each cupcake.  Garnish with a sprinkling of graham cracker crumbs.
