Food Friday...uber delayed
voila! Thursday night i had Coconut Heaven Cupcakes from Vegan with a Vengeance. i borrowed the book from Lacey, after learning that a co-worker of mine loved coconut cupcakes...and on top of that, it was her birthday! she mentioned that her most favorite cupcakes were from a bakery in Baltimore and you couldn't get it anywhere else. so i took the challenge and after reading the first line from the recipe:
"These are a must for the coconut lover in your life: dense coconut cupcakes topped off with fluffy coconut icing to die for, thus the name Coconut Heaven Cupcakes."
i used the book for recipe, but i just found one here. the only difference from all of this was that i used sweetened shredded coconut. i cut down the confectioner's sugar (because i ran out) and added 1/4 cup of vegan cream cheese because my icing turned out runny. the results were pure bliss. i loved the icing with the hint of cream cheese. Elia loved it too. she even said that it was better than her favorite cupcake from Baltimore. sweet!!
