Chocolate Coconut Cupcakes

These were an experimental batch that turned out really well. I used this killer chocolate cake recipe that I've used a few times in the past. I substituted half the water for coconut milk to add a little extra depth to the cupcakes. The cupcakes turned out pretty good, I left them in the oven for an extra few minutes and a few of them developed that hard cupcake top.

The frosting was a simple coconut butter cream frosting that I topped off with some toasted coconut.

Happy Birthday Dan! (Belated...)

I made these cupcakes almost a month ago for a friends birthday. Tres bien!

Cinco de Mayo Margarita Cupcakes (belated)

prinkling of sugar on top.

We stayed home on Cinco De Mayo, but I made these cupcakes the following Saturday for a belated Cinco de Mayo party. I utilized 'Vegan Cupcakes Take Over The World' as a base and updated the recipe for my liking. Lime plus tequila equals yum. The frosting is the same as the whiskey butter cream substituting the whiskey for tequila with a light sprinkling of blue sugar on top.
