- 180g butter, softened
- 2 cups icing mixture
- 1 cup coconut, shredded
- 12 drops of yellow food colouring
- 24 choc chips (for eyes)

Preheat oven to 160C. Line a 12 cup tray with patty pans.
Prepare cake mix as directed on the box and scoop 1/4 cups of the batter into 12 patty pans. Bake for 15-20 mins.
Remove and cool on a cake rack.
Beat butter with an electric mixer until pale and creamy, gradually add icing mixture and beat for 2 mins on high.
Spread this generously over the cooled cupcakes.
Place coconut in a ziplock bag with the food colouring and shake and rub until all the coconut is yellow.
Press the coconut into the icing on each cupcake.
