  1. Whisk the melted butter and sugar together until noticeably thicker in consistency (about 3 minutes).
  2. Add the eggs, coconut rum, pineapple juice and coconut cream and whisk again until combined.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and salt. Add gradually to the butter and rum mixture, mixing each time.
  4. Pour the cake batter into a jug and then pour into 12 cupcake cases, about ¾ of the way up. Bake for 15-18 minutes at 180°C (350˚F).

  6. Using a piping bag or zip top bag with a small corner cut off, pipe the topping onto the cupcakes and decorate with some dessicated coconut, cherries and a straw.
  7. Enjoy!
