Anyway, for today's cupcake, we were inspired by the warmer weather. Although summer is still months away, this cupcake reminds us of summer.
These cupcakes are chocolate with a hint of coffee. We were kind of nervous when we made the batter because the coffee flavor was too strong. Luckily, the flavor mellowed out a bit once they were baked. There is also some coconut in the batter. Once they were cooled, we topped them with some lightly-sweetened whipped cream, toasted coconut, and drizzled with some melted dark chocolate. They may not taste just like the drink, but they're excellent, none the less! And even if you're not a fan of coffee, the topping is good on its own!!
Thanks for stopping by!!
