THE RECIPE

Award-Winning Chocolate Coconut Cupcakes

There's a surprise inside.

This cupcake is totally over the top and, as you’ll see when you check out Carla’s recipe, it has a surprise inside – a sweet, gooey coconut filling. Reminiscent of a german chocolate cake, this cupcake is so good that it’s award-winning, placing 1st out of 32 entries in this year’s Herald-Mail Cupcake Contest. Feeling a little down? This will pick you right up. Tired of eating healthy? Indulge a little. And don’t tell anyone because if no one sees you, it doesn’t count.

Chocolate Moosey

Carla Cardello

Everything I do, I do with huge fire and passion. I am a self-taught home baker with a from-scratch philosophy and love putting a personal spin on recipes.

What we love about Carla is that she takes traditional baking recipes and puts her special “Chocolate Moosey” twist on, changing things up just enough to make them interesting while still reminding us of the nostalgic flavors we love. A self-taught baker, she does everything from cakes to cupcakes to brownies, cookies, and bars, along with a dabble of savory dishes here and there. Her photos are as indulgent as the dishes themselves so make sure to check out her blog to see for yourself.

Make sure to say hello to Carla on TwitterFacebook, and Pinterest.
