I channeled my inner Martha today and decided to make my favorite frosting from scratch! Growing up we usually had German Chocolate cake I think for everyone's birthdays! Here's the frosting recipe I used! I did cheat and make my cake from a box because I completely ran out of time. I also saw on another blog that parchment paper works as a liner, especially for me because I can NEVER find cupcake liners in my Wal-Mart! I took an extra step and made it crafty though. You knew it was comin' right ;) I sprayed toothpicks with Helmar's VC Vellum Adhesive and wrapped the coordinating tinsel and also used die cuts from Pink Paislee's newest Hocus Pocus line. I then cut strips from my favorite paper of that line (wink, wink) and used my new Martha Stewart punch to make a unique edge. I then wrapped my paper around my cupcake. You could also mist your toothpicks if you don't have tinsel.

ETA- What Peytan found. He didn't hide the evidence well ;)

Using a boxed cake mix is not cheating..shhhhh as far as I am concerned that is the only way to make cupcakes :)

Oh how I love those cute little toppers! The frosting looks so yummy!! I am the only one in my family who likes coconut though so, I would have to eat it all by myself and that would be no fun. LOL
