Pina Colada Cupcakes

These Pina Colada cupcakes are perfect for summer and will make you feel like you are on a tropical getaway! 

 Coconut flavoured pina colada cupcakes filled with pineapple puree and topped with a rum buttercream

If you like Pina Coladas and getting caught in the rain, then these cupcakes are for you.  These coconut cupcakes are filled with a pineapple puree and topped with a silky rum buttercream. A cherry on top and a cocktail umbrella complete these festive cupcakes. These cupcakes will make you want to head to the beach.

The cupcakes are full of coconut flavour. I used both coconut milk and shredded coconut in the cupcakes to really highlight the coconut flavours. Coconut pairs so well with different tropical fruits. I decided to go with a pineapple filling but I think mango would also work great with these cupcakes, if you're looking to do something a little different.

I decided to put together a video for you of me making these cupcakes. There a couple of steps to get to the final product but trust me they are worth it! The flavours batter, filling and frosting each come together to create the tropical pina colada flavour!  The recipe for the cupcakes, filling & frosting are below. Enjoy!
