coconut cupcakes with coconut curd frosting

I grown-up in tropical country with coconut trees around, I love to drink fresh young coconut and coconut jell with a spoon back then.
Every once in a while I still bought coconut water in cans and coconut jell in a jar, not so fresh but I liked it.
Over a year ago I found cream coconut curd and I really like it, rich and creamy It's perfect coconut cream to make a dessert, I made coconut cupcakes fill and decorate with cream coconut curd cream cheese frosting.

Ingredients :

- 1 stick unsalted butter,softened
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 2 extra large eggs
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup coconut milk
- 6 oz sweetened grated coconut

Coconut curd frosting :

- 1 cup coconut curd
- 1 cup cream cheese softened
- 2 Tbsp confectioner's sugar
- 2 Tbsp coconut milk

( Mix all frosting ingredients together until smooth and fluffy )

Directions :
Preheat oven on 350 F
In a mixer beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy
add beaten egg one at a time,add vanilla extract

Sift all dry ingredients together (flour,baking soda,salt)
Add flour mixture into batter, mix well
add grated coconut  and coconut milk and beat until combine

line 12 large or 24 mini cupcakes liner in mini muffin pan
fill with the cupcake batter
bake for 18- 22 minutes or until risen / toothpick comes clean

Let them cool, and fill and decorate cupcakes with coconut curd frosting.
