MSC: Coconut Cupcakes (Just a Wee Bit Late)
And I'm late. But these cupcakes are so worth the wait. I knew I was in for a good time when I was humming and yumming over tasting the batter. It was a good sign of good things to come, despite deciding at the last minute to go with mini cupcakes which I did not have liners for so I was lucky to get two good ones out of the pan.
That said, even a pan full semi ruined mini cupcakes is still a very good thing. This was a very moist cake and since I am a fan of coconut this was a little bit of culinary joy for me. I thought the cake was perfect on it's own. To me, a regular frosting, would have been too much. And I was slightly intimidated by making the cooked 7 minute frosting which was helped by not having a candy thermometer. So I did a little baking cheating and took some powdered sugar, coconut milk and a splash of rum which I poured over the cupcakes before sprinkling them with grated coconut.
I would definitely make this again. Except with liners the next time so as to not waste a single cupcake.
