Snow Angel Cupcakes







Ingredients

1 box of Angel Food Cake Mix
1 1/4 c water

For Frosting:
2 sticks (1cup) of butter, softened
6 cups of confectioners sugar
1/2 cup of whole milk
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups of shredded coconut, sweetened 


Preparation

Preheat oven to 375. 

In a large mixing bowl, beat cake mix and water with electric mixer for 30 seconds on a low speed. Kick things up and beat the mix on a medium speed for 1 more minute. 

Pour batter into lined cupcake trays, filling about 3/4 of the way.

Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the tops of the cupcakes are golden brown and cracks form on top. Remove from baking tray and let cool on a rack. 

While the cupcakes are cooling, it's time to whip up the frosting. 

Place butter in a large mixing bowl. Add 4 cups of sugar, then milk and vanilla. Beat on a medium speed until smooth and creamy, about 3-5 minutes. Gradually add in the remaining sugar. 

Spread a thick layer of frosting on cooled cupcakes. Cover frosting with shredded coconut and top with Treat Street Holiday Treat Topper.
