  1. In á smáll bowl combine the powdered sugár, heávy creám, coconut extráct, ánd shredded coconut. Stir until completely combined.
  2. Once cupcákes áre cooled, cut out the center, I used án ápple corer, or you cán álso use á páring knife, cut á smáll circle ápproximátely 1/2 án inch in diámeter ánd 1 inch deep. Set áside the piece of cupcáke, fill the center hole with filling ánd pláce the piece of cupcáke báck inside to close up the hole.


  1. In lárge mixing bowl ádd the butter ánd mix until creámy, ádd the heávy creám ánd powdered sugár ánd mix on low speed until fully combined ánd frosting is peáking. Add in the coconut extráct ánd mix.
  2. Add frosting to piping bág ánd pipe onto cupcákes. I used á Wilton 2A tip to ádd the frosting to the top in á circle shápe. Pour the sweetened shredded coconut into á smáll bowl. Holding the cupcáke upside down, gently press the frosting into the shredded coconut until the top of the cupcáke is coáted in coconut.
