If coconut is your thing, these are going to be your ideal cupcake. Filled with coconut, topped with a delicate pink icing..a sweet treat in cupcake form.

 

Ingredients

 

110g butter, at room temperature

180g caster sugar

2 large eggs, at room temperature

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 tsp almond extract (optional)

125g self raising flour, sifted
