Easy Cupcake Presentation With Blue Hawaii Cupcake Recipe

Hi Everyone!
True :D here.
Welcome to day 5 of our "Recipe Swap and Food Packaging Week"!

For thoes of you who don't know, I create digital stamps and lately have been doing some fun cupcake wrappers. 
Bonnie suggested that I feature my wrappers during this special week, so I thought I would show you a very simple way to decorate and present a cupcake.
This would be a great little gift for a teacher, mailman, paper boy, or just about anyone!

This is what the gift looks like all prettied up with Double Band Teal Satin/Grosgrain ribbon.

I simply put the cupcake in one of my digital "Snowflake Cupcake Wrappers", dropped it in a clear Dixie cup then down in a clear treat bag. Add a tag from the digi set and the pretty ribbon and you have a cupcake worthy of gift giving!

Here is my digi set.
It is available for instant download for just $2.50!
 I was very excited to see that Wilton makes blue snowflake sprinkles.
I have seen them in almost all stores I have been in lately!
This is what my cupcake looked like after a little taste testing. Mmmmm nummm yummy!

I wanted a blue cupcake to match my wrappers so I went looking for a recipe and found one called Blue Hawaii. While that recipe looks great, I wanted something a little faster so I came up with my own recipe made with a cake mix and added a few extra ingredients.

Here is my version of the Blue Hawaii cupcake.

True's Blue Hawaii Cupcakes
1 White cake mix prepared as directed using the egg white version.
Add the following:
 1 small can of crushed pineapple that has been drained VERY well.
1 cup shredded coconut
1 tsp. coconut extract
2 or 3 drops of blue food coloring
Fold to incorporate added ingredients then bake as directed on package.

Cool, then frost with pre-made Whipped White Frosting then sprinkle with coconut and optional snowflake sprinkles .

Yes, I cheated and took the easy route, but they sure turned out yummy!
Now if you'll excuse me...I have a cupcake to finish!  LOL!

Have a sweet day!
