I actually bought the bag of coconut flakes for macaroons after I saw Ina Garten’s recipe on Food Network. I love macaroons and when I first made some years ago, it didn’t look like macaroons at all. That means they were an EPIC Fail. But I learned what I did wrong while watching Ina make her macaroons so I was definitely ready to redeem myself. Too bad that when I started to assemble the stuff in my counter to make them, I realize that I forgot to buy 1 major ingredient. The condense milk. Like Duhhhhh. However, I did not let that deter me from making something sweet that day, heh. If all else fails, MAKE CUPCAKES. If there’s a coconut cake, I’m sure cupcakes with coconut frosting wouldn’t be so bad. And VOILA, behold the chocolate cupcakes with coconut buttercream frosting.
