Sweet, slightly sticky, and with a slight crunch on top, these cupcakes are great if you're looking for something with a tropical flare. They have a sophisticated look to them that will wow your guests first visually, and then when they bite into them and realize this isn't just an ordinary cupcake!

Step 1: What You Need

For the Coconut Cupcakes:
2 eggs
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar (to try and impart some dark flavor, since I wasn't using rum)
1/2 tsp of salt
2 Tbs butter
1/2 cup coconut milk
1 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder

For the Pineapple Glaze:
2 cups pineapple juice (This is NOT the same as the syrup that comes in a can of pineapple)
2 Tbs of sugar

For the Pina Colada Frosting:
1 pinch of salt
3 Tbs room temperature butter
3 Tbs and 2 tsp coconut milk
1 Tbs Pineapple Glaze, (which will be made before the frosting.)
4 cups powdered sugar

For A Garnish:
Organic Coconut
super yummy!
;P hummyy
