Pineapple Cream Cupcakes



I made three batches of these with a slight variation, and they were an ENORMOUS hit! (That’s why I made them twice more after the first time.)
I made the cupcakes as above (I got 20 out of the recipe), but for the frosting instead of the vanilla extract I used 1 tsp. of coconut extract and 1 tsp. of rum extract, then sprinkled the tops with coconut before adding the cherry. Top them off with a paper umbrella and you’ve got pina colada cupcakes!
