Happy Easter to My Peeps!


I might ramble a bit today (what else is new?) because there are several reasons for writing today’s post. One being that I think this post is very appropriate for Easter since I made coconut cupcakes (I just think of Easter when I think of coconut cake…don’t ask me why!). It is also a fun post because my hubby has gone totally creative insane (just take a peek at the peeps in the pictures!). πŸ˜‰ We have now resorted to playing with our food!


This is a sentimental post for me since the first picture I had on my banner for this blog was of these very same coconut cupcakes! Some of you may remember that photo (it was not a very good one – it had white balance issues). It certainly would have been rejected by my friends at the foodie photo websites! Back then (in November), I did not even know of those sites, so it would not have been a concern! Maybe I was better off not knowing about those sites! Now they just stress me out! Anyway, you food bloggers will know what I am talking about! πŸ˜‰


Back to the cupcakes…these cupcakes were a huge hit with family and friends when I first made them. Such a big hit, in fact, that I had some people (and you know who you are!) driving over to my house to pick them up on a moment’s notice. They truly are that good! In fact, I will be calling those people today once all these photos are taken because we do not need to be eating these. You will know why when you click on the link to the recipe below!

The other reason for just having some fun today (and being sentimental) is because I am saying goodbye to WordPress.com and moving to a hosted site within the next few days. 😦 That may not mean a whole lot to many of my readers, but when you return after the move, you will see a very different Bunkycooks.


I am excited and scared to death anxious about the new site because it involves way more computer skills than I have, so if things are a bit whacky for a while, please bear with me! To my subscribers (thank you, by the way!), you will probably need to subscribe again to the new site because I am not sure that the subscriptions will transfer over.

Now, once again…about the cupcakes…they are incredibly fattening delicious, so if you are looking for a really yummy coconut cake recipe, it does not get much better than this one! You can click HERE for the link to Ina Garten’s recipe. Now you should have known it might be her recipe if they are that decadent!!!

I hope you enjoy the pictures today. We are now TOTALLY certifiable! Keep checking back over the next few days to see the vastly improved Bunkycooks with a printable recipe and all! (Yeah! And the crowd went wild!)

I have had fun with my peeps and I hope you do the same this holiday weekend! This post gives a whole new meaning to the term “peep show”!

Let’s get together soon! Have your peeps call my peeps and we will set up a date! πŸ˜‰

  6. I LOVE this post! Good luck with the transfer – Barb won’t let anything go wrong!

  7. These are ADORABLE!! And congrats on the blog upgrade! One of these days, I too, shall learn how to build my blog beyond WP. But that takes a lot more patience than I have at the moment. Happy Peeps to you and yours!!! [K]

  8. wow Look at them! Ain’t they just adorable and sweet!!

  9. wow…these look sooo good!! I love coconut in frosting, but my wife hates coconut….sigh….I may have to make some anyway πŸ™‚

  10. Gwen!!! Looking at this adorable post, I feel almost like Alice in Wonderland! πŸ˜€ You should definitely play with your food more often!

    Good luck with the move – hope it all goes smooth as a baby’s bottom for you πŸ™‚ Can’t wait to see your new ‘home’!

    • Thank you to all for the comments! I feel like have totally lost my mind…very fun! I should make coconut cupcakes weekly! πŸ™‚

      I am nervous about the move…my web designer totally rocks…I am the frightened one! WordPress.com is like an old shoe (and a really good one, I might add!). The new site will be different and it means moving forward and that is good!!

  11. Ann

    OMG!! those are sooo cute and lovely!

  12. Dear Gwen – I think losing ones mind on occasion is very good for the soul πŸ™‚

    And if on that occasion one does things with such creative flair then I think such moments are to be celebrated!

    You are delightful and these cupcakes even more so. I wish I had such talent in the cupcake department. I think I was stuck in the back of the line when such talent was being handed out by the big G.

    OMG the cupcakes were amazing!!! The photos are adorable…my cupcakes were very lonely without the rest of their peeps!!! Great job Bunky!!

  14. Your coconut cupcakes look amazing, and your acrobatic tower is adorable! I love that one! I am all about chocolate for Easter (especially my mother-in-law’s amazing chocolate cream cheese cupcakes that she makes only once a year!) but I may have to make these too. Nothing wrong with two kinds of cupcakes, right?
