I made these Valentines Day Coconut Cupcakes for my mom. She loves coconut cakes and cupcake. Heck, she loves anything coconut.

Keeping pretty true to myself, I used a cake mix, instead of by scratch and already made frosting.  All I did to achieve this awesomeness, is add coconut extract to the cake mix and sprinkle the top with some shredded coconut.  If you don’t like coconut, change it up with maybe lemon extract or some vanilla.  Sprinkle some decor on top in lieu of the coconut.

It’s so very easy to take the plain up a notch and make it something better and all the while, not working harder or longer in your kitchen. Then you can either get more accomplished or make more than what you thought you could with your time. Or people “think” you spent all day baking.
