Why I Love This Recipe

Got a request for this one. Haven't perfected the scratch recipe yet, so here's the original boxed recipe.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 Vanilla cake Mix
1 can coconut milk
1/3 c. oil
3 eggs
1 1/2 c. coconut flakes
1 package frozen strawberries (thawed)
1/4 c. sugar
1 lime (juice only; lemon is fine also)
1 8oz. pkg cream cheese
3/4 c. confectioner's sugar (sifted)
1/2 t Pina Colada candy flavoring
3/4 c. pineapple chunks (drained)
1/2 container frozen whipped topping (Cool Whip)
24 maraschino cherries (w/ stem)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Combine cake mix, coconut milk, and oil until well blended

Add eggs one at a time, beating after each addition

Fold in 1 c. coconut flakes until just combined

Divide equally amongst 24 lined cupcake wells

Bake for 18-22 minutes, and cool on a wire rack

Slice all strawberries in half (reserve 24 halves for garnish) and place in a saucepan over medium heat with sugar and lime juice. Simmer until strawberries are really soft.

Prick each cupcake with the back of a handle of a wooden spoon - all the way to the bottom.

Slowly push a cooked strawberry half into each cupcake, and allow to cool

For frosting, beat cream cheese until soft and creamy.

Add sugar a little at a time until well incorporated.

Crush pineapple chunks, reserving 8 chunks for topping

Beat or fold in whipped cream (I prefer the abundance or bubbles in my frosting)

Frost cupcakes, roll sides in rest of coconut flakes, and top with strawberry slice, and cherry.

Slice reserved chunks in thirds and top with other fruits.
