Aka: LOST Cupakes! A bunch of folks have asked for this recipe. It’s not so much a recipe as tweaks on someone else’s recipe, and I’ll lay that out below along with a link to some great cupcake toppers and the awesome cupcake stand in the photo!
Last night’s premiere left me…sort of speechless! I’ve basically got no theories. My friend Denishia did have a good one, though, and now I’m going to put a cut, so folks who haven’t seen s6e1 won’t get spoiled. If you’re looking for the cupcake recipe, scroll past the stars to the bottom.
So, reality is all split up. Denishia was thinking maybe each of the Oceanic 6 could be alive in only one reality – like the universe course correcting. Thoughts?
Now, on to the cupcakes!
Coconut Lime Cupcakes with Molasses Rum Buttercream Frosting
The recipe itself is modified from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World, but you could probably find any vanilla cupcake recipe and make this work. Ready? OK!
- Get yourself a vanilla cupcake recipe.
- Substitute coconut milk for the regular or soymilk and lime juice for the vanilla extract.
- Mix 1T lime zest into the batter at the very end.
Everything else should go according to whatever recipe you’re using. The trick here is to have the same amounts of liquids:solids, just changing up the flavors.
- Find a basic buttercream frosting recipe.
- Substitute rum for the soymilk.
- Substitute molasses for the vanilla extract.
Voila! If you’re looking for cute cupcake toppers, I recommend checking out L is for Lemonade. Their toppers are handmade and oh-so-cute! A few folks have also ogled my super-adorable mini cupcake stand. That came from The Vegan Dish.
