OK so somehow it was already the last weekend before this post was due and I was just getting around to finding out what the recipe was. Never a good start. Oh well.
This recipe was chosen by Jamie. She chose these Coconut Cupcakes. Which is good because after my shrimp bisque disaster I needed something to work out better.
I started off intending to do the recipe as is. 18-20 cupcakes, no big deal right? Then I started looking at the recipe. 1.5 lbs of butter for 18-20 cupcakes. That's ridiculous! I only had 1 lb of unsalted butter and I had already run to the store for everything else so I wasn't going again so I decided to halve the recipe and make it into mini cupcakes.
And this recipe makes a ridiculous amount of frosting. If I had used all of it, they would have been 50% by volume frosting. So I have a pint of cream cheese frosting waiting in the fridge for the next thing it should go on. Maybe some cinnamon buns.
Wanna know a secret? I put some key lime curd inside of them. And it is wonderful.
