It's Really Better Than Sex Cupcakes
- 1 box yellow cake mix
- 1 cup canned juice-packed crushed pineapple
- 1/4 cup canola oil
- 2 large eggs
- 1/2 cup sweetened coconut
- 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 3 teaspoons whipped cream stabilizer
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1/2 vanilla bean, sliced lengthwise, seeds scraped
- 24 fresh raspberries
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Line 2 cupcake pans with paper liners. Prepare the yellow cake mix by mixing together 1 cup water, the cake mix, pineapple, canola oil and eggs. Divide the batter evenly among the cupcake liners, filling each two-thirds full. Bake until golden and a toothpick comes out clean, 15 to 20 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
Place the coconut on a baking sheet and toast until lightly browned, about 5 minutes.
Combine the heavy cream, sugar, stabilizer, vanilla extract and vanilla bean in a large bowl. Whip with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form, and then transfer into a pastry bag fitted with a wide tip.
Pipe out 2 tablespoons of frosting onto each cupcake and top with 1 teaspoon of the toasted coconut and 1 raspberry.
