I really hate editing photos for posts like this because every time I take a peak at this picture I run downstairs and grab a cupcake.....This blog may result in massive weight gain! But let me tell you, these pineapple orange cupcakes with coconut frosting are a revelation! Its been pouring rain around here but I feel like I have been instantly transported to the tropics each time I bite into one of these guys!
I used the same exact recipe from my earl grey tea cake post. I swapped just a few quick things. Instead of a vanilla frosting I made a coconut frosting (recipe here) and I used pineapple flavored tea and orange extract in the place of earl grey and vanilla. Oh and of course instead of a cake I opted for individual cupcakes! Just goes to show, once you learn a method you just have to add a little imagination to create whatever you're craving at the moment!
Isn't that cupcake box great? I keep
it around for instant inspiration.

I'm a sucker for fresh fruit on cupcakes:
I can't count how many of these
I have eaten. Don't judge.
