Double coconut cupcakes

So after posting pictures of my cupcakes on Twitter, I got asked by one of the Fiends Miss Summer to make her some cupcakes! She requested Coconut. I found this great recipe on the internet and gave them a test run last week and mmmm mmmm mmmm is all I have to say. Coconut filled cupcakes with a vanilla butter cream, topped with sweetened coconut!

I made another batch of the cupcakes last night and Summer came by to pick them up! She greeted me with a  Fresh Fiends fanny pack! I hadn't gotten one yet so I was thankful she brought me one. After thanking eachother and after she left, a little bit later I was browsing through Twitter to find that she thanked me once again saying that the cupcakes were delicious!!! I was very pleased to hear that she thought they tasted great.... 

This is as they were sitting on the cooling rack before I put them in the box:

And this is them packaged up. 1 dozen regular sized cupcakes and 6 mini cupcakes.

Stay tuned in next week to see pictures of the finished Monster cupcake, and the chocolate cupcakes filled with mini chocolate chips decorated to look like pumpkins!

Strawberry-Lemon cupcakes with extra whipped cream cheese frosting

These cupcakes turned out great tasting! You may not be able to see from the picture but yes there are strawberries in the cupcakes it's not just the strawberry filling. I thought the strawberries would cook too much or something of that nature, but they didn't! Here is what they looked like as I prepped them in the pan.

I made some regular size cupcakes too and this is what they looked like after they finished cooking.

I will be very honest with you my house never smelled so yummy as these were cooking. I guess you had to be there ;)

Here are the regular and mini cupcakes cooling on the rack.

This is what they looked like after I piped the frosting on them. When piping even the simplest design DO NOT USE extra or whipped store bought frosting. I bought the frosting to save some time WRONG idea! I will stick to making my own from now on. When I put the frosting into the piping bag it got softer and looked like glop when I put it on the cupcakes. :(

They shouldn't look like this you should be able to see each round right on top of the other. You see the one to the right pretty bad but that is when I ran out of frosting so I just smashed the little dome.

This is what they look like when you dip into them

Here is a sneak peak on what I am working on next. The logo I made was too big for the cupcake so I have to make it smaller so that it will fit perfectly on the top of the cupcake!

Hope you enjoyed...
