Fellow Cancerian and Sit ‘n Knit regular Maia celebrated her birthday over the weekend, a perfect reason to make coconut cupcakes!
Toasted coconut & cacao nibs on top
I had been wanting to try this recipe for awhile, and it is a winner…even a non-lover of coconut said she enjoyed her cupcake. I also tried out my new ice cream cone cupcake pan! The ice cream cone cupcakes came out beautifully, but they were too top-heavy to stand on their own, even before frosting…wahh!!
Falling ice cream cone cupcakes = messy
Maia wisely suggested I try using skewers to hold the cone cakes up, perhaps stuck in floral foam…I will have to experiment with this next time…Dan took a cupcake-to-go in the Cup-a-Cake carrier, a brilliant solution for cupcakes on the go...
I also made a knitting needle case with fabric from my Knitters Tea Swap pal, and a set of origami coasters, for the birthday girl!
