There is something about coconut cupcakes that remind me of Easter. They do look a little like nests if you let your imagination soar. Also, it’s probably because my grandmother would make coconut cupcakes for Easter. She dyed the coconut green, sprinkled it on top of the vanilla icing and put colorful jelly beans in the nest. All her grandchildren thought they were wonderful and they were.
These cupcakes are a little fancier because they are filled with a fragrant, vibrant lemon curd. To add some extra lemon flavor, the cream cheese icing has lemon curd folded into it.
They would be terrific anytime, but they are extra special on Easter Sunday.
