Easter cupcakes w/ toasted coconut & eggs


Yesterday I made the cutest little Easter cupcakes and they were just too good not to share. Toasted coconut, cadbury eggs, polka dot baking cups… {swoon}. These Easter cupcakes are so simple and nothing new, but they are definitely a family fave. Growing up we would color the coconut green, but I think the toasted coconut tastes so much better! These would be perfect for an upcoming Spring event. They require little effort on your part, but will definitely oo and ahh your guests!

Cadbury cupcakes with toasted coconut...yummy!

  1. Those are just too cute! That is a good tip about not filling the cupcake baking paper too full in to have a flat surface for the cute toppings. Miss Emmie is adorable!

  2. Those look lush! What flavour cake mix did you use?

    • Hello I am looking for a vaiutrl set to produce a TV show about real estate. For the video demo I saw the package of 3 Serious Magic Ultra 2, seems to be what I need. I would like to confirm that those scenes just the beginning of the video that appears in an aerial image showing several buildings and going inside a building taken at the table and showing the presenter is included in the package 3 of the program. I would also like to know a phone that I can contact a company official to clarify details about the product. My name is Marcelo and I’m from Brazil. Thanks if you can answer me as soon as possible because I need to do this work with some urgency. Thank you.
