Kyle's Golden Birthday

My friend Kyle turned 27 yesterday ON THE 27th and naturally, cake and cookies were needed to celebrate. He loves the coconut cupcakes and per his request, I got to baking.  I have been getting pretty good at these coconut cupcakes and they are getting popular around these parts.  I used 1/2 of the batter recipe, 1/6 of the filling recipe, and a full frosting recipe and came out with 24 beautiful coconut cupcakes.  Kyle and his family just got a new camera and his wife is getting to be a wonderful photographer so they took some nice pictures for me.  I frosted some with chocolate frosting this time and it tasted great.  Someday I will make a chocolate cupcake with this filling and chocolate ganache frosting and put an almond on top.  Maybe I'll call it the almond joy cupcake!

I also made some really cute cookies for Kyle.  He loved rinos and I found an adorable rino cookie cutter at the store.  With a little royal icing and some time to dry, these cookies are almost cuter than the cupcakes...

Gray shirt and gray rino presents.  It was just perfect.
