This Easter cupcake doesn’t look too elaborate, but it’s still pretty cute. The golden pieces of toasted coconut make up the nest for the fondant eggs. It’s funny how many Easter desserts use toasted coconut for decoration. Coconut at Easter is almost like Peppermint at Christmas. It’s everywhere, so if you don’t like it, you’re pretty much doomed.

This cute cupcake is topped by coconut flavored buttercream and toasted coconut flakes. Nestled on top of the cupcake, there are three colorful fondant eggs. Not only was the fondant edible, but it actually tasted good. Crazy, right? The eggs reminded me of a fresher version of the marshmallow circus peanut candy. This was the first time I’ve ever really enjoyed fondant.

Inside the cupcake, there is a key lime curd. To my surprise, it’s a yellow color with the consistency of custard. It tastes more like a lemon flavor at first. It’s very tart, but it’s got a strong lime aftertaste.

The fondant egg is falling, not floating.

The coconut taste in the frosting is very light and enjoyable. Most of my dislike of coconut is the texture, not the flavor. Even though there’s a lot of toasted coconut all over this cupcake, I didn’t really notice the texture.

The cupcake is a basic, yellow cake. The plain flavor of the cake helps balance out the strong key lime filling and the flavorful coconut buttercream.

If you’re a fan of coconut and key lime, this cupcake is a must. Even if you’re just curious to try this exotic combination, or the best fondant I’ve ever had, make sure you hurry over to Creature Comforts or Restaurantosaurus and get this cupcake before it’s gone.
