Pineapple cupcakes with Mango frosting

Who knew something so pretty started with the mess below:)

This picture should explain the day I was having..

I decided to try Bakerella's recipe and it turned our great! There is a few things I would have done different but overall they were GOOD!
Here is the recipe:

Pineapple Cupcakes
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1 1/2 cups sugar
3 eggs, room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup milk, room temperature
20 oz. can of crushed pineapple, drained and pureed*
Keep the pineapple juice for cocktail hour!
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line cupcake tray with 24 paper liners.
  • Whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl and set aside.
  • Cream the butter and sugar together in a mixer for several minutes. Add the eggs one at a time scraping down the sides of the bowl with each addition. Add the vanilla and mix until combined.
  • Add the flour mixture to the sugar mixture in three additions with the milk in two additions (flour, milk, flour, milk, flour) Mix until combined with each addition
  • Add the pineapple and mix until combined.
  • Fill cups about 2/3 full and bake for about 15 minutes.
* I pureed the pineapple in a food processor. I’m not a big fan of fruit chunks. Flavor yes. Chunks. Not so much. (Make sure all the chunks are out)
Mango Frosting
1-2 Mangoes
1 cup butter, room temperature
1 lb box of confectioners’ sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Cut mangoes.
  • Place mango pieces in food processor and puree enough so you have about 1/3 cup.
  • Beat butter and vanilla until creamy.
  • Add confectioner’s sugar in several additions. beating until well combined with each addition.
  • Add 1/2 cup of mango puree and beat until completely combined.
  • Spread frosting on cooled cupcakes.

Last but not least.. Cocktail Hour!!

1 part vodka
1 part soda water
2 part pineapple
Shake with ice
Garnish with a leftover piece of Mango!

A Big Thank you to my mom for making me the flower cupcake toppers!
