white chocolate coconut buttercream

I've been aching to melt down a Lindt white chocolate coconut bar and smother it on something.

So I whipped up a new buttercream --a rich, creamy coconut-vanilla worth licking.

Spoonable -- that's what this is.

The white chocolate basically tastes like vanilla...on steriods.

Then there's the coconut, all fluffed up into a buttercream that I just wanted to pile on top of the cupcakes.

I've struggled for a while now to find the perfect frosting for coconut cake.

This is it.

I also plan to ice my favorite vanilla cupcakes with it. And maybe chocolate cupcakes, too, for that whole yummy chocolate-coconut thing.

My husband even suggested pineapple cake. That'll be a new project -- Hawaiian/tropical rainforest cake.

Ok -- the frosting is indulgent.

I don't use that word often. 

But that's exactly what it is.

And worth every single lick.

 

UPDATE: I put this frosting into some serious cookie action with my coconut cream lemon cookies.
