It's the middle of Summer and nothing says Summer to me like lemon, coconut and fresh fruit. It was time for a fruity, summer-ish cupcake.
Papaya's intense peach coloured flesh really appealed to me at the market yesterday, and having never eaten fresh papaya before (I know, the horror!) I decided to cart some home for a yummy summertime treat.
For these treats, I used my gorgeous new cupcake liners that I picked up from The Essential Ingredient for 10c each. They aren't particularly cheap, but they're as close to Chockylit's liners as I can afford.
In a humble ode to Chockylit, I present to you...papaya and coconut cupakes!
Now, I did not rip off her recipe (you can find hers here). Instead, I took her idea for a such a combination and made it my own.
I topped mine with buttercream, but cream cheese frosting would be equally as appealing.
