3 sticks butter, room temperature
2 cups sugar
5 extra-large eggs at room temperature
1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 teaspoons pure almond extract
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup buttermilk
14 ounces sweetened, shredded coconut

1 pound cream cheese at room temperature
3 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon pure almond extract
1 1/2 pounds confectioners' sugar

Let's get baking! 

Step1- Using a bowl with a mixer, cream together the butter and sugar for about 5 minutes. This step is very important; so make sure the butter is fully smooth and blended with no lumps. Now turn the mixer  on low and add the eggs in one at a time. After this add the almond and vanilla extracts.

Step2- In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. 

Step3- Alternating with the dry ingredients and buttermilk add them to the mix we made in step1. Once that is all mixed add in 14 ounces of coconut.

Step4- With the oven at 350 degrees bake the cupcakes for 20-25 minutes.

The frosting!

Step1-Cream together the cream cheese, butter, and vanilla and almond extracts. Add the confectioners' sugar and mix until smooth.

And waaa-laaa they are done! I also turned some left over batter into a little cake:)

Happy baking!
