Coconut Cupcakes!

Pin It Now!

We moved to a new building at work yesterday so for the last week I've been going through 8 years worth of stuff deciding what to keep and what to throw away.  It's so amazing how much junk and old paperwork, not to mention dust I have accumulated over that time!  It was worth it now that we are in our nice new office space!  You're probably wondering what the heck that has to do with cupcakes...
Well, I decided to make cupcakes to take to work to celebrate our move!  I had resisted the urge to buy those coconut cupcakes I showed you on my trip to Napa but I couldn't stop thinking about them so I made my own!
They were so good! They even have cream cheese frosting!  I used The Barefoot Contessa Coconut Cupcake recipe that you can find here.

Once I get settled in my new cubicle at work I'll show you what it looks like!

Cindy,

Those cupcakes look delicious, and so perfect! You could easily sell those in an upscale bakery.

I can't wait to see your new work area. I have a feeling you've added some special personal touches to your work space.

I just love a good cupcake and those are delicious! I have made them myself. I think it's the cream cheese that gives them that extra UPMH!

These look so delicious! I love coconut, but my hubby doesn't. I think I might have to make these and make some without the coconut on some, to be nice! Yum!

Joanne said...

Wow! They look dee-lish! And I am sure they are! With 3 sticks of butter for the cupcakes and 3 sticks for the frosting (not to mention the pound of cream cheese for the frosting!)I am sure they are nothing short of magnificent! It would have to be a very special occasion to indulge in these.

Susan said...
