White Chocolate and Coconut Cupcakes

I have been seeing cute Easter cupcakes everywhere and I decided I want to do some. I had a little look in the cupboard to see what I had, I saw the bag of coconut and thought that it could be used as a nest on my cupcakes.

Then I just had to decide what else I wanted to do with the cupcakes and this time of year you just see milk chocolate everywhere, not many white chocolate Easter eggs around, so I decided to do these cupcakes as I liked the idea of white chocolate and coconut together. We already know that coconut and milk chocolate go well (Bounty).

I must admit that I was slightly aware that combination may not go well and could ruin these cupcakes, but I thought I will never know unless I do them. I was totally wrong; these cupcakes were not ruined one little bit in fact they were good. The sponge tasted incredible.

If you like coconut like me then these cupcakes are perfect and make the perfect little nests if I do say so myself. I topped the cupcakes with a mixture of M&M eggs, Mini Eggs and Milkybar Eggs.
