Best Frosting Ever ~ Coconut Butter Cream Frosting


In our home, hubby is the chef and I’m the baker.
We sometimes swap roles; I can sling a pizza in the oven perfectly!

The other day I was baking up a storm making some cupcakes for my boys' birthday, I used a standard cupcake recipe, which I’m sure you all have.

BUT….

I made the BEST EVER frosting

Vanilla, Coconut, Butter Cream Frosting

Oh my goodness, this stuff is wickedly good; Ahren actually stopped eating the cake part of the cupcakes to concentrate on the frosting!


You owe it to yourselves to make some today; you don’t even need to bother with the cupcakes!

Here are the ingredients you need, this will make enough to cover 9 cupcakes generously, add more to cover more!


Cream together the butter and icing sugar.
When light and fluffy add the coconut and a few drops of vanilla extract {or not, just as yummy without}, cream it all together.
Now for the fun part, separate the frosting into 3 portions.
Add a FEW drops of food colouring to each batch.
I used a cocktail stick to add a few drops of

Blue, Red & Green

By only adding a few drops you will get a lovely pastel shade, perfect for any Spring day!



Some cupcakes with this pastel frosting will make a lovely treat over Easter for those not wanting the chocolate eggs!
