Coconut Bird Nest Cupcakes

Coconut Bird Nest Cupcakes

Hi guys! I am re-doing another recipe from the archives again and bringing it some new life. These coconut cupcakes were made in March 2013 (that’s three years ago!!!) when I just started blogging and they have remained a favorite over time.

I’ve of course played with the recipe since then as I develop as a baker and the version below is the current awesome state of a soft coconut cupcake topped with sweet coconut whipped frosting. I love how the coconut flavor is intense in these because of coconut cream (instead of coconut milk) and it makes my coconut-loving heart happy!

Chocolate Almond Cupcakes with Fluffy Coconut Frosting


There are few things that go together better than chocolate and almonds. Add in some coconut and you will end up with an unforgettable (and tasty) combination! These chocolate almond cupcakes are flavored with whole almonds that have been chopped finely, shredded coconut, cocoa powder, coconut milk and unsweetened chocolate. The frosting is made from sugar, egg whites, cream of tartar, salt and vanilla extract. Bake, frost and sprinkle with more shredded coconut before serving.

white coconut cupcakes with coconut frosting.


Ask any fan of coconut flavored items (or just plain coconut) and they will tell you that there is no such thing as too much of the flavor. These white coconut cupcakes can attest to that, as they contain the fruit in both the cupcakes themselves, and in the frosting. The cupcakes are flavored with coconut milk, sweetened shredded coconut and vanilla extract. The frosting also contains vanilla extract and coconut milk, and you can always sprinkle some shredded coconut on top for extra flavor!

Coconut Cupcakes with Coconut Frosting


Sometime you just need something different; when the regular plain ol’ chocolate and vanilla cupcakes just will not cut it, head for these coconut beauties. Made from shredded coconut and coconut milk, along with flour, salt, butter, baking powder, sugar, eggs and just a dab of vanilla — these are exactly what you have been looking for! Consider making these, and topping them with coconut buttercream frosting, plus maybe a tropical-themed decoration or two — for your next party!

Gluten-Free Coconut Cupcakes with Coconut Frosting


One of the biggest food trends around — and the word “trend” barely applies because wheat gluten sensitivity is very real — are gluten free cupcakes. These treats are made from a gluten free cake mix, coconut extract, coconut milk, butter-flavored vegetable shortening, and eggs. When it comes to frosting them, you have two choices: gluten free whipped frosting with coconut extract mixed in, or frozen whipped topping mixed with finely chopped pineapple.
