Coconut Blizzard Cupcakes

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Chandra

I found these cupcakes in a Family Life magazine. They are kind of like a Hostess cupcake only they are white cake with a dab of raspberry in the center and topped with coconut.

Refrigerate until ready to eat? We could barely wait for them to cool enough to put the frosting on. These cupcakes are terrific. Makes only 10 (which is a good amount if you don't want 4 kids to "overdose"). They sounded good, but far better than I expected in reality! Highly recommended!
