Rich, delicious and easy coconut cupcakes that you can mix up in no time.
I love coconut desserts for spring, especially for Easter. These moist and delicious coconut cupcakes are perfect for an Easter dessert. I whipped these yummy cupcakes up from a Pillsbury Yellow Cake Mix. Not only do these cupcakes make for a tasty treat, but they are so easy that they are great to make with the kids. Pillsbury mixes make it easy to mix up a moment. Thanks to Pillsbury for sponsoring this post.
My youngest daughter loves to help in the kitchen, but she can be a bit, well, distracting. I find that sticking with simple recipes works best, so that I can keep track of things! I love starting with a cake mix and mixing thing up. A little coconut milk and shredded coconut turns a yellow cake mix into delicious coconut cupcakes.
It’s easy to stock up on Pillsbury cake mixes and frosting when you are shopping at Walmart. It’s great to have some on hand so that you can mix up a moment any time.
I measure the ingredients and my little helper pours. One of my favorite tasks to give my little helper is to have her put the cupcake liners in the pans.
Some Pillsbury Cream Cheese Frosting and a little toasted coconut and you have easy, and delicious, coconut cupcakes.
These are such a great Easter dessert!
