It was my Grandpa's 85th birthday this weekend so I decided to bring homemade coconut vanilla cupcakes to the big event! The recipe is adapted from the best vanilla cupcakes. Once you've found the perfect cupcake recipe there is no need to try any new ones, especially when it's so incredibly versatile. I simply exchanged the soy milk for coconut milk and put a raffaelo in the middle of each cupcake, before they went into the oven. And who doesn't love Raffaelos with their crunchy almond and cream in the middle? Topped with coconut mascarpone and then they started their journey to Styria. The cupcakes were a huge hit at the party, even after 4 courses people kept eating them, so I really take that as the biggest compliment. Massive amounts of food and Schilcher Sturm were consumed, I'll maybe post pics later! Hmmm... family events are awesome ♥
Also, we set up the gingerbread christmas crib I bought for my grandma! You know, the one I told you about. It's so cute, we had such a great time glueing the pieces together with sugar :) And probably I had the most fun of us all. Haha, just look at the Three Kings!
