Coconut and lemon cupcakes


Until recently, I wasn´t really that much fan of coconut and it´s flavor. Then I developped quite a ridiculous addiction to Rafaello, and it all kind of snowballed. My fiancé got me this Malaysian Coconut set on Valentine´s Day, and it inspired me to experiment with coconut in the kitchen as well. Lemon and coconut is not my usual cupcake combination, but they came out surprisingly delicious. They strike the perfect balance between the sweetness of coconut and the sourness of lemon. All in all, an amazing surprise. Prove that inspiration can spark anytime and everywhere.
