Dole Whip Cupcakes

Finishing the month strong with a cupcake recipe I am really proud of! I am a Dole Whip super fan so naturally for our daughter's second birthday this past Saturday we had a have a Moana-themed party and Dole Whip birthday cupcakes. Featuring a coconut milk infused cake batter with shredded coconut, pineapple curd, and pineapple cream cheese butter cream frosting everyone at the party gave me compliments. Even Minnie Mouse gave them a try after blowing out her own number two candle!

These cupcakes are made from scratch but pretty easy to make overall. I used a couple unique extracts to enhance the flavors of the cake and frosting but they can easily be swapped or ommitted. Starting with the cake, I modified a traditional vanilla cupcake batter by adding unsweetened coconut milk instead of regular milk. To pump up its flavor profile I added in 1/2 tsp of coconut extract to the coconut milk. This meant I could reduce the vanilla extract to only 1/2 tsp for balance.
