Total TimePrep: 20 min. Bake: 15 min. + cooling
Fantastic! This definitely reminded me of Hawaii with the pineapple and coconut taste. I'm not too fond of shredded coconut, but I tried it out anyways and it turned out great. It was a nice balance between the frosting and the other toppings. I lack the decorating skills to make them look like they did in the picture, but they were delicious. I also had a significant amount of leftover frosting, but it's so delicious that I'm sure I'll find other uses for it besides the cupcakes. I will definitely be making these again.
At first, I couldn't decide whether not not I liked these, but I can't explain why. After eating 2, I decided to keep the recipe. They are really light and fluffy, including the frosting. I did have to bake them for about 5 minutes longer than the recipe said to. I also had a LOT of leftover frosting. These are very different and were a nice change.
