  • 1 box Angel Food Cake Mix
  • 1 1/4 c water minus 2 teaspoons
  • 2 tsp. coconut extract
  • Frosting
  • 1 9- ounce container Cool Whip chilled
  • 1 tsp. coconut extract
  • 1 c shredded coconut


  • Open box of angel food cake mix and pour content into bowl or stand mixer. Add in water and coconut extract and blend on low for 30 seconds, then on medium for about a minute. Do not over mix.
  • Pour about 1/4 cup of batter (you do not want them overfilled) into prepared cupcake liners and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until cake just starts to brown around edges.


  • Add 1 teaspoon coconut extract to chilled whipped topping and stir. Using an ice cream scoop, scoop out frosting onto each cupcake. Gently press coconut flakes into whipped topping
