Coconut Cupcakes - Martha Stewart
Martha Stewart's Coconut Cupcakes

MS Cupcakes Club

For this month's Martha Stewart's Cupcake Club, Jennifer from Cinema Cupcakes chose Coconut Cupcakes on pages 28-29 of Martha's fantastic book: Martha Stewart's Cupcake Book. Sorry for the delay in the post...I feel asleep instead of making these on Friday!

As I've mentioned on the blog several times, I have a love/hate relationship with coconut. Love the flavor, hate the strands. I knew these would be going straight to work! :)

Coconut Cupcakes - Martha Stewart
This cupcake uses coconut milk and food processed coconut flakes. I didn't feel like making the frosting. Yesterday in my baking class (post coming soon), it was all about frosting and I was kinda frosted out. Also, several on-time bakers thought the cupcake was perfect without frosting...so I took their advice and just dusted them with some powdered sugar.

We are about to enter a week of lotsa rain in Los Angeles. A place where we flood because our poor drainage system is made for the desert and not a downpour. I think celebrities are going to line up two-by-two at the Hollywood sign! ;) Wish us luck!

Recipe:

The Martha Stewart Cupcake Club doesn't post the recipe. You can use WorldCat to see if your library has it in their collection (I need to put the Librarian in the Food Librarian sometimes! :)

Be sure to check out the other Martha Stewart Cupcake Club members and their version of the recipe! Yes, you can actually see frosting! :)

My frosting didn't work, so I probably should have gone your route. I like the way yours look. The powdered sugar is really pretty (prettier than my sad frosting)

I wish I could make cupcakes dusted with powdered sugar as pretty as you can! I can't wait to see your frosting post. The classes you've been taking look like a lot of fun.

Your cupcakes are beautiful. I feel the same way about coconut.

I sometimes prefer my cupcakes without frosting. It's simpler and a much lighter dessert. Yours look delicious, and the powdered sugar is a great touch!

I'm with you on the taste but not the textrure of coconut!

I've had trouble with some of the MS cupcake icing recipes.

I think sometimes cupcakes are better without frosting! A little sprinkle of sugar is great.

I love the way these look!

Good luck with the rain. We're getting a whole bunch up here in Northern California, but I'm not used to rain anytime!

I don't like frosting so these are perfect for me!

These cakes soooo didn't need to frosting. Your sugar dusting finishes them off quite fine.

Your cupcakes look simple and sweet - and I think they are great with or without frosting. Imagine being "frosted out!"

Pretty cupcakes- I don't think they need the frosting.

I put just a smidgeon of frosting - the cake was so good, even without it! Love the way these look with confectioner's sugar - light and fluffy!

Oh man, just coming to visit you and seeing these cupcakes again makes me wish I still had a few left. I would definitely leave the frosting off next time because I thought these were plenty delicious without it. Too bad you aren't a coconut fan because these were delicious!
