vanilla and coconut cupcakes

We traveled this past weekend to Erie for my family reunion. This was the first reunion where I made my own contribution to the food. As you can guess, I had to do cupcakes. I was even going to take photos of my family enjoying them, but to be honest it was too hot to be alive so my camera stayed in the bag. I made my favorite white/vanilla cake recipe and made a new coconut buttercream with toasted coconut.

Into the oven and on to the icing!

They melted a bit in the heat, but the coconut seemed to help the icing stay on the cupcake and we avoided disaster!
