Pina Colada Cupcakes 2

1 18.25 ounce box pineapple cake mix
1 cup water (plus reserved pineapple juice)
1/3 cup vegetable oil
3 whole eggs
1 8 ounce can crushed pineapple, well drained and juiced reserved
1 teaspoon rum extract
Coconut Butter Frosting
2/3 cup butter, softened
7 cups powdered sugar, divided
1/3 cup coconut milk, or more if needed

Preheat oven to 350. Mix cake mix as directed, except use a mixture of water and reserved pineapple juice to make the amount of water required. Also add 1 teaspoon of rum extract and crushed pineapple.

Cook for about 18 – 20 minutes or until done.

Cool on wire racks.

Frosting: In a bowl, beat butter until fluffy. Gradually add 2 cups powdered sugar and salt, beating well. Slowly beat in coconut milk. Gradually beat in 5 cups powdered sugar. Beat in additional coconut milk to reach desired spreading consistency.

I pipe the frosting onto the cupcakes, but I like lots of frosting!!!

For some reason this made 24 regular and 24 mini cupcakes. I’m really not sure why!!

I prefer this recipe to the other Pina Coloda cupcakes that I posted. The frosting is so good, I could just eat it all say long!
