Ah, the joys of a tropical vacation: warm sand, gentle breezes, the lapping of the ocean waves.
Ah, the joys of a mountain town winter: salted roads, weird windstorms, unpredictable snow. It’s enough to make a girl dream of a paradise adventure, which is what I’ve been doing these days. To balance the winter funk and bring us one step closer to a Caribbean getaway, I’ve found a great substitute: Tropical Paradise Cupcakes from The Artful Cupcake.
Really people, these little treats involve cream cheese & orange frosting. And coconut and pineapple. And your very own cabana by the sea. (Well no, there’s no cabana. But there IS a downloadable PDF of the recipe–just click this link to Tropical Paradise Cupcakes Recipe from The Artful Cupcake)
Come on, Northern Hemisphere, you can do it. Bring on the spring. Happy baking!
