My thoughts: I made this for a food day at work, but I made a cake instead of cupcakes and it was really good. I received many compliments. Just an fyi - the recipe says to replace the water in the cake mix with the pineapple juice from your pineapples, however there is not enough pineapple juice, so I put all the pineapple juice in a measuring cup and filled in what I was missing with water. Turned out great.......... Luau cupcakes - drain the juice from pineapple chunks and replace the water in vanilla cake mix with the pineapple juice. Frost with buttercream and add freshly toasted coconut to the edges with a piece of pineapple and a cherry.
