Ambrosia Cupcakes

Happy First Day of Spring everyone! Remember those two ingredient cakes that were all the rage a while ago? Well, they're still out there, and they're still pretty good, and quick... and easy...
So I thought I'd play with the yellow cake/pineapple version a bit and make 
Ambrosia Cupcakes!

Yep it's true, you can just mix these two items together and make a cake/cupcakes. 

Ambrosia Cupcakes
One white or yellow cake mix
One 20 oz can crushed pineapple
1 tsp orange zest-Used mine from the freezer
1/2 C coconut
Cool Whip
Mini marshmallows
Maraschino cherries
  1. Put everything (except last three ingredients) into the mixer and let 'er rip!
  2. Divvy up into cupcake liners, will make 20-24.
  3. Bake at 350 approximately 18-20 minutes, or until done.
  4. Cool and frost with Cool Whip, add marshmallows and a cherry to the top. Note: I used real whipped cream out of the can for this pic, it melted too fast, I'd stick with Cool Whip.
  5. Store covered in the fridge.
Variation: For Cinco de Mayo-Pina Colada Cupcakes, remove 1 Tblsp of the pineapple juice from the can and replace it with 1 Tblsp dark rum. Omit the orange zest. I'd top them with a sprinkle of coconut, no marshmallows, and the cherry is up to you:@).

Have a happy day!
