These were the cupcakes I made for my daughter’s luau themed birthday party a few weeks ago.
Since it was a luau, I tried to stick with Hawaiian flavors and ingredients, hence the coconut, macadamias, and pineapple.

Here they were just before we sang happy birthday. Cupcake stand is from Target. Ruffled Baking Cups are from Wilton.
