We were having a BBQ with some new friends and the girls decided to try making pina coladas to drink. It may have been chilly day, but at least drinking a pina colada makes you feel like you’re on vacation! I was trying to decide what to make for dessert, and since I had pina coladas on the brain, these are what I ended up with!
These cakes could not be easier. No baking skills required. Just 2 little ingredients.
Despite the fact that there wasn’t any oil or eggs in the cake, it was deliciously moist. These were possibly the best boxed cupcakes I have ever made. And I’ve made a lot of boxed cupcakes.
- 1 box yellow cake mix
- 1 (20 oz) can crushed pineapple, undrained
- 1 can cream cheese frosting
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup sweetened shredded coconut, divided
- Dried pineapple pieces, for decorating
