Toasted Coconut Cupcakes
Our wedding came with a number of challenges.
The boxes of decorations that we’d spent 10 months making magically disappeared somewhere over the Pacific Ocean between Portland and Hawaii (I’m looking at YOU, USPS.).
Gail force winds made a surprise appearance two hours before the wedding started and forced us to re-locate the ceremony and reception to our Plan B (which, um, didn’t actually exist until that point).
Oh, and my poor mother was sick as a dog. Silly stomach flu.
Nevertheless, there were also many tremendously wonderful things about the day.
Like Sam’s super romantic vows to me. Oh, and the AMAZING wedding cupcakes made by my mother-in-law.
My in-laws were in town last week to celebrate Sam’s birthday. And because our birthdays are so close (just 8 days apart!), they were sweet enough to throw me an early birthday party before they left and returned to LA.
I know, I’m a lucky girl.
But wait, it gets better. Along with dinner and presents, I was given the “secret” recipe to the coconut cupcakes from our wedding.
I hope these cupcakes bring you as much love and aloha as they did to me. Enjoy!
