Buko Pandan Cupcakes

My cousin Nikole turned 19 & requested a Filipino dessert turned cupcake!  She wanted a buko pandan cupcake, which is coconut & pandan leaves (somewhat a banana flavor).  I decided to make the cupcakes using coconut milk & pandan extract then filled them with macapuno (shredded sweetened coconut in a syrup).  I made butter cream frosting flavored with coconut milk & a hint of the pandan extract.  I topped each frosted Filipino treat with some more macapuno.  It was a big hit, especially with all the Filipino aunts & the birthday girl!
Here she is holding a cupcake up!
