Mix the batter following the directions provided on the bag of Westco Extra Rich White Cake Mix for a small batch.


  • Cupcakes: Deposit 2 oz. of batter into paper lined cupcake tins.
  • Toasted Coconut: Spread a thin layer of Westco Sweet Flake Coconut on a paper lines baking sheet. Bake at 325-350°F for 5-10 minutes checking frequently to make sure the coconut flakes won’t burn. Remove from oven. Toss the coconut flakes and return to the oven for an additional 5-10 minutes to toast flakes evenly on both sides.


Bake at 325-360°F for 15-20 minutes. Let the cupcakes cool down.


After the cupcakes completely cool down, pipe rings of Westco Vanilla Buttercrème Icing RTU on top of each cupcake using a piping bag with a large leaf tip. Garnish the top of each cupcake with toasted Westco Sweetened Flaked Coconut. Place a couple of Easter Egg Candies on top of each cupcake.
