A Warm Reminder.

It has been getting cooler around my parts. It's still September but it feels like it's the end of October or even the beginning of November. The weather is very bittersweet. I like the cooler temperatures because it's actually enjoyable to be outside but at the same time it's a sad reminder that winter is around the corner. With this in mind I tried my hardest to hold on to the last few days of summer by making cupcakes. Not just any cupcakes either, Pina Colada Cupcakes. I had seen these cupcakes a while ago and was smitten. It was a recipe that I absolutely had to try. I was so happy I did because the cupcakes were great. They were so moist and dense and the frosting was absolute perfection. Alex paid me the biggest compliment by saying that the cupcakes tasted similar to this cupcake shop in the North End.

Make sure to check this post on Good Things Catered for the cupcake recipe and this post from Yum. for the frosting recipe.

Try it and enjoy!

I left out the coconut topping...

...and added more pineapple juice to the frosting.

I used vegetable oil but I think canola would have been better.

It was still scrumptious though!
