Coconut Poke Cupcakes

Over the weekend I tried to create a bunny cake I would help a neighbor make every Easter when I was young. It was not as sucessful as I had hoped it would be. I took pictures and decided I would attempt it again this weekend. I really loved the time I would spend in my neighbors kitchen. The angel food cake on the other hand turned out wonderful. Instead I decided to share these cupcakes with you that I also made this weekend.
