These cupcakes are like an edible Pina Colada with rum, pineapple and coconut; they are finished off with a coconut buttercream.
This recipe is delicious and earned 19 out of 20 points in the WI cooperative section of the Gower show 2011. I altered the recipe slightly by using coconut milk and a dash of Malibu in place of milk for the butter cream and pineapple juice in place of milk in the main cake recipe. I decorated the cake with a small slice of pineapple a cocktail cherry and a cocktail umbrella to mimic an actual Pina colada drink. A huge success!!! - 25 Sep 2011 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)

This recipe is perfect in every way. Came out Light and Fluffy. one point though is i used muffin cases and mixed a batch for 12, but they produced about 15 muffin sized cupcakes. Can't complain. - 20 Nov 2012 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
