MSC - Coconut Cupcakes
I am learning to love cupcakes. I've always enjoyed eating them, but I'm finally getting into the spirit of preparing and decorating the fussy little beasts.
Of all the recipes we've tackled in the Martha Stewart Cupcake Club, this is by far the best. These coconut cupcakes have body without being muffin-dense. They are moist with the addition of unsweetened coconut milk. (Please don't tell me how many calories that adds!)
They weren't too sweet until I mounded them with Seven Minute Frosting. By the way, am I the only one for whom Seven Minute Frosting always takes 14 minutes?
You may notice that my photos for both blog posts this week are following a theme. Yes, I've taken my food outside, perhaps wishing these rich treats far away from my table, and sat them in the snow.
Many thanks to Jennifer at Cinema Cupcakes for choosing the recipe. It's a keeper! Next time I won't bother with the frosting.
I hope everyone will go over to Eliana's blog A Chica Bakes. Your comments will add to her effort to donate to the Haitian Relief Effort on behalf of all of us.
