Coconut Snowballs with DIY Cupcake Liners

Coconut Snowballs with DIY Cupcake LinersI finally made some cupcakes out of the cookbook I won off of twitter, Cupcakes! from the Cake Doctor. I had a bunch of leftover coconut from the Pina Colada Pancakes I made last month and already had some coconut milk so I had everything I needed for this recipe except the cake mix which is an ingredient in all the cupcake recipes in this cookbook. I thought this was a little strange, and still do. It's not a cookbook I would have ever bought. But I have it, so I might as well try a few recipes. The cookbook is all about turning ordinary cake mix into something different.

It turned out, cake mix wasn't the only thing I was missing. I was also missing cupcake liners. I could have sworn I still had some but I couldn't find any anywhere. I had planned to hold off on the recipe another week and get the liners the next time I went to the store but @slowdumbshow suggested I make my own using parchment paper. I gave it a whirl and they turned out just fine and they gave the cupcakes a little more character. The frosting was a simple whipped cream frosting with a bit of confectioners sugar. I shared them with Mark and brought some to work and the vanpool and everyone enjoyed them.
