Barefoot Contessa's Coconut Cupcakes...."How Easy is That!"

Coconut Cupcakes

My role model in life is Ina Garten, otherwise known as The Barefoot Contessa. (Yes, even more so than Martha Stewart, Paula Deen, and The Pioneer Woman). Nobody does simple and elegant entertaining better than Ina.

When I was looking for coconut cupcake recipes, I knew this recipe would be a hit. You can read it here. 

During the holiday season, a great idea would be to dye the coconut red or green before decorating the cupcakes. Unfortunately, I didn't think of this until right now, but dyeing coconut is very quick and simple.

I knew that these cupcakes were best suited for my #1 fan, who asks me "Have you written a blog?" at least ten times per day. Thank you Brian for keeping me on my toes, supporting me in everything, and providing much of the inspiration for what I write. Love you to the moon.
