Lime and Coconut Cupcakes

I made these cupcakes the other day to send to Rob’s work collegues at a place he freelances at. And I managed to remember to take pictures of them on my pointless purchase of the month this cute little cupcake stand from M&S. Which they call useful on the website BTW!

red and green should not be seen…….

I used this recipe below –

2oz dessicated coconut
1/4 pt milk
4oz butter or margarine
8oz caster sugar
2 eggs
Pinch of salt
8oz SR Flour

Soak coconut in milk for at least 2 hours. Cream the butter and sugar, beat in eggs, flour and salt, then stir in coconut and milk mixture. Bake at 180° for 25-30 minutes.

For the icing I used roughly –

140g/5ozbutter softened
280g/10oz icing sugar
1-2 tbsp hot water
few drops green gel food colouring
1-2 drops lime flavour oil

I did not have enough frosting to ice all 12 cakes though. I got the flavour oil from my trip to The Cake and Bake Show which I attended at Earl’s Court with my mum last month.

Yep, I bought loads of Jubilee cupcake cases in the sale
