Coconut heart cupcakes with Creative Tops





I made some yummy coconut cupcakes this sunny afternoon. They taste great and are a nice change from the normal vanilla cupcakes I think. I used a recipe online but adapted it (as per). You know me by now I hardly ever follow cooking instructions, I normally just adapt it as I go along.


                                                                                                  RECIPE
2 cups all purpose flour
2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 1/3 cups sugar
3 large eggs
1 cup desiccated coconut

METHOD
Mix it all together really well, pop into cases and then pop it into a preheated oven. 220C for around 10-15 minutes. (Mine overcooked a little as you can see, haha - I became preoccupied with other things. Fail. Just keep an eye on them. 
For the frosting I mixed together icing sugar, milk and butter. I spread the buttercream over the cupcakes and then sprinkled over a little more desiccated coconut over the top and sprinkles on some.

This is a very picture heavy post but I just had to show you all the new kitchenware I got recently courtesy of CreativeTops / The English Table. The style is so me, and honestly I have never been so excited about a collaboration than with this one! The items are from two different ranges; Katie Alice and Retro Treats. They are super high quality and make baking fun. All the ranges are absolutely beautiful and I have my eye on a few more things - need to complete the collection.

The heart silicone cases are adorable and the little heart pots are so cute for storing sprinkles.
