Its official, the Christmas season has started in our house! The tree is up, we’ve handed out invitations for our Christmas party, and the holiday baking has started. I absolutely love holiday baking! Holiday potlucks, neighbour gifts, cookie exchanges, Christmas parties for the kids…lots of reasons to start planning out those holiday recipes now. This recipe for Snowball Cupcakes is one that both kids and adults will love. These coconut cupcakes are made using Silk Original Coconut Beverage so both the cupcake and the frosting have a delicious coconut flavour. This frosting…seriously could eat this with a spoon. Actually, I did eat some of the leftovers with a spoon. Holiday calories don’t count, right?
Coconut Cupcakes & Frosting:
Silk Original Coconut Beverage has no artificial colours or flavours and it’s free of dairy, soy, lactose, gluten, casein, egg and carrageenan. It was an excellent choice for bringing that coconut flavour into these Snowball Cupcakes.
