..Christmas Wreath Cupcakes

DSC_4053

As promised, here is the second cupcake recipe for the week.  Coconut cake with cream cheese frosting.  Super festive and not too hard to execute :)  Now go fourth and bake, my friends.

Cupcakes (recipe concocted by yours truly)
1 box white cake mix
2/3 cup oil
1 cup coconut milk (from the milk section, not the sugary canned kind)
4 eggs
1 box coconut cream pudding mix
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon imitation coconut extract (seriously a little goes a long way with this stuff)
2/3 cup sweetened coconut flakes

Bake on 350 degrees for 20 mins.

Icing

Wreath
When I have to dye my own icings those non-pastel hues I end up having to use so much dye and it gets a bit runny so I cheated a little and bought the red and green Cake Mate icings with this four pack of icing tips.  I used the starred one for the green wreath part and the small circle one for the red bow.  I threw on some sprinkles but they kinda went all over the cupcake so you can leave that part off if you don't dig it.
