These Pina Colada Cupcakes are a fun twist on the classic cocktail.
Deliciously moist pineapple cake with bits of crushed pineapple topped with toasted coconut!
We even get a little boozy for the full effect, but they’re equally delicious as a “virgin” Pina Colada Cupcake!
Make a batch of these, summon the pool boy, and catch some rays while enjoying the tropical flavors of these fun cupcakes.
