What better way to start my 50 Treats mission than with a cupcake? #21 on the list is a coconut cupcake from Kara’s. I’ve had Kara’s cupcakes before and I personally like their carrot cake cupcake and their chocolate velvet cupcake. I never tried their coconut one because coconut is not at the top of my list for favorite foods. However, I have been missing out because the coconut cupcake is quite fantastic. For the coconut cupcake, they use a chocolate cupcake with a vanilla (or possibly coconut) buttercream frosting, and the frosting is covered in shredded coconut. I found it difficult to distinguish whether the frosting is vanilla or coconut because the shredded coconut is all over the frosting. I like the combination of the chocolate cupcake and the coconut flavor. I am happy to say that my mission has started off deliciously.
Sidenote: I am currently eating the apple pie that I mentioned in my previous post. My mother was supposed to have taken it to work today because otherwise, I would not be able to stop myself from eating the rest of it. But she didn’t take it to work and thus, here I am, stuffing my face with pie. I told my mom that by not taking the pie to work, it was the same thing as keeping alcohol in the house if I were an alcoholic.
