For Jeff’s (Ruth’s beau) 50th birthday, we surprised him with a dinner at a local restaurant. The weather surprised us with a major snowstorm! We had a really nice dinner and I made these yummy cupcakes.
Frost with butter cream frosting — mine does not actually include butter in the recipe but, I digress!
- 1 lb Crisco
- 2 lbs powered sugar
- 1/2 cup of water or milk (I use almond milk)
- 1/2 t vanilla extract
- 1/4 t lemon extract
- 1/4 t almond extract
I usually add my extracts to the milk so they get included evenly.
Beat Crisco until shiny and add powered sugar and milk alternatly.
Add shredded coconut to the frosting and mix well.
Frost the cupcakes, adding more coconut if necessary. Drizzle with caramel and chocolate sauces.
Now to catch up on the rest of the months………..October, December, January…..I promise, I will post you!
