Toasted Coconut Cupcakes

Toasted Coconut Cupcakes

I’m 26 today!!! AH!  I am SO excited for this year. Yes the only thing 26 really means is that I have to get on my own insurance… but I am so incredibly happy and grateful for where my life is right now!  Just got married, have the cutest dog ever, a great job and amazing family and friends.  I also am excited to be on a new workout plan!!  I am doing Kayla Itsines’s Bikini Body Guide and just love it!  It is nice to have a workout plan rather than getting to the gym and trying to make something up! I also am trying to eat as healthy as I can which is why you will see lots of zoodle recipes and other skinnified dinners, but I could never give up my sweet treats.  All about moderation right?!  Well it’s my birthday and i’m eating cake! Cupcakes to be exact.  There is something about toasted coconut that is unlike anything else!

I am also super excited about these because I tried something I have never done before, made my own sized cupcakes holders!  I got theses super cute little cupcake liners for my bridal shower but they were too small to fit normal cupcakes and too big for minis and you can’t cook the batter right in them because the oils would bleed right out.  So I fit some nonstick tin foil in each one and baked them like that!  They didn’t turn out perfectly even but they popped out with ease and then I tossed them back in the liner without the foil.  Any imperfection can be covered in frosting :)
