A dear fried of mine recently asked me if I could make some cupcakes for her husband's birthday party. I love a good excuse to make lots of cupcakes! So, after much thought I decided to make cocktail inspired adult cupcakes with liquor. I went for a Hawaiian theme for my cupcakes as the birthday boy was getting a 1950's Hawaiian shirt from his adorable wife.
For the Gluten free Pina Colada cupcakes I made a fresh pineapple and coconut cupcake with a rum meringue frosting, I decorated them with cocktail umbrellas, Maraschino cherries and a slice of coconut.
