Valentines Day Coconut & Raspberry Cupcakes

Following on from yesterday's post I thought I would update y'all on what I have baked for the 'big' day.. aka Valentines Day! I didn't want to go down the lovey dovey pink heart and 'I <3 U' route so instead I baked some coconut and raspberry cupcakes :) 

Now.. I haven't had a chance to try one of these yet and am a little worried as, well like most of my cupcakes, it was a bit of 'oh I'll add a dash of this and that' to the mixture ha.

For a brief overview, they are a pink vanilla sponge (just added pink gel colouring) with some sweet desiccated coconut. I mashed up some raspberries and heated them with some caster sugar and water which was for the filling. Then a standard vanilla butter-cream with some dried raspberries and coconut! 

Hopefully they taste as yummy as they look!

Happy Valentines Day everyone :)
