vanilla custard coconut cupcakes
Vanilla cupcakes with vanilla custard filling, topped with vanilla frosting and toasted coconut

A few weeks ago, a friend placed an order for birthday treats for a set of twins who were turning 40. We both agreed cupcakes would be less hassle to serve, so I set about coming up with two types of cupcakes to suit each twin. I came up with these — three dozen of each.

Vanilla cupcakes with vanilla bean custard, topped with a simple vanilla frosting and toasted coconut and dark chocolate cupcakes filled with butter salted caramel, topped with cocoa frosting and toasted pecans. I swear, I turned around to get one and POOF! They were all gone.  I haven’t posted the recipes, but if you must have, please let me know and I’ll post. Cheers!
