Valentine Cupcakes with Two-Toned Coconut Buttercream

 


Coconut Buttercream.... oh Yum!!!
This recipe was inspired from Cally and I's trip to Waco this past summer.  While in Waco we visited the Silos Baking Company, which is owned by Chip and Joanna Gaines.

The cupcakes were out of this world delicious.  My favorite was the Shiplap.  To me the icing tasted of toasted coconut even though the description was Vanilla Cake + Vanilla Buttercream.






        Again this year I’m so excited to participate in this Valentine’s event 

                         



This is the fifth year for our event and we want to continue to make a difference in the fight against pediatric cancer. Cancer is the #1 cause of death of children by disease in the U.S. There are 40,000 U.S. children actively battling cancer right now. The National Cancer Institute’s budget for childhood cancer is less than 4%. It’s such a small number and that’s why I got involved. And with the ongoing pandemic, children are still being diagnosed with cancer. It’s imperative that we raise awareness and continue to raise funds to fund the ongoing pediatric cancer research! Help us make a difference by donating to Cookies for Kids' Cancer! Our goal is to raise at least $3000. Because these three companies: OXO, Mediavine and Dixie Crystals have each pledged to match our donations raised through this campaign up to $3000! That means when we raise $1, it turns into $4! Thank you to so many of you who have already donated, please help us reach our goal so we can get the full matching donations and help us make an even huge difference! Donate here today.


I used my go to cupcake recipe for the cupcakes but created a Coconut Buttercream to put these cupcakes over the top delicious.  I used cute Valentine sprinkles of pink, green and white for the upcoming Valentines Day Celebration.

I think these cupcakes would also be good sprinkled with toasted coconut not to mention I love the smell of toasted coconut :) 
           


I tried a new technique for my icing.  I did a Two-toned pink and white icing for these cupcakes and iced them using Wilton piping tip 1M.  After making the icing, I removed half to another bowl and colored it pink.  

To create the Two-toned color, I took a piece of plastic wrap and spooned the white icing in a log down the center of my plastic wrap.  I then repeated with the pink icing, spooning a log parallel along side the white icing.

Fold the plastic wrap over forming it into a two-toned log.  Twist the ends by twirling the icing log to seal the ends.  

Take a piping bag that has your selected tip on the end (I used 1M) now drop your wrapped icing log into the piping back and pull the plastic wrap end through your tip and trim it off close to the end of the tip.  Now when you squeeze the bag you will get a two-toned beautiful icing!



In the above picture you can see how pretty the pink and white icing mix together



A special Thank You to OXO for my surprise goodies!  They are very much appreciated and will be put to good use!



A big Thank You to all the sponsors for this years event, Dixie Crystals, OXO and Mediavine

  5. I am very pleased with the help CYBER CREDIT GURU rendered in restoring my credits. I am a disabled Veteran who over the past 2 years had to let my credit go due to health priorities that were not covered by VA & other insurance, my credit scores were 514 Experian, 515 Equifax, and 518 TransUnion. No public records, only 3 open Accts but several collection Accts with Zero Balances, few Weeks ago, I ran into some Credit blogs on the net which led me to CYBER CREDIT GURU the most talked about US based Russian hacker, who tremendously repaired and upgraded my credit score to 784, 789, and 802 within the 3 Bureaus in just a Week after I contacted him. If faced with similar challenge, connect with him via: C Y B E R C R E D I T G U R U (AT) G M A I L (DOT) C O M or Call / Text: +1(650) 239 7249 you too can be helped, I recommend him without hesitation.

  13. Hello guys, I just want to share my joyful experience about HACK VANISH CREDIT SPECIALIST. Before the coronavirus pandemic, I had criminal Judgments, few evictions, and late payment which negatively impacted my credit score down to 487 and left me in difficult financial situation, as a single mum of 3, I needed a loan to keep the family running after I lost my husband as a result of COVID-19, all hope were lost, until Mrs. Olivia referred me to HACK VANISH, a credit genius who was very helpful in fixing my credit 6 days after I reached out to him via Email: hackvanish (At) gmail (Dot) com and Phone: +1(747) 293-8514, throughout the process, I felt so involved because an open line of communication was maintained till I got my FICO score restored to 796, currently my loan application has been approved. If you need to hire a credible hacker, HACK VANISH is highly recommended.
