Easter Jam Filled Vanilla Cupcakes with Coconut Frosting

Yield: 24 cupcakes



Prepare cake mix following package directions for cupcakes.

After cupcakes have cooled, use a paring knife to cut a 1 inch piece in the center top of the cupcake, remove and set aside (don't eat or discard!) Fill each opening with 1 teaspoon of jam and replace cake pieces.

Coconut Frosting:
Place butter, powdered sugar, milk and extracts into a mixing bowl. Mix until very light and fluffy, about 3 - 4 minutes.

Spread coconut frosting over each cupcake. Pour coconut into a bowl. Dip the frosted top of each cupcake into the coconut and gently press and twist to cover cupcake top. Spread a very thin amount of frosting onto the bottom of a Peep Chick and place on top of the cupcake. Arrange 5 or 6 jelly beans around the Peep.
