"If You Like Pina Colada's..."

Ah, there’s nothing much better than feeling as though you are sitting on a beach in the Caribbean sipping on a well blended Pina Colada! Well, except if that was actually the case :)

Unfortunately, a trip to the Caribbean wasn’t in the mixer, but Pina Colada cupcakes made with fresh coconut were! Pina Colada Cake with a Coconut Buttercream and topped with freshly sweetened coconut!

These cupcakes were made from scratch using a fresh coconut and nothing canned or packaged; from drilling the eyes of the coconut, cracking the shell, and draining the juice to shredding and sweetening the coconut flesh! A bit time consuming, but oh so worth the end result! Yum!
