Chocolate Coconut and Bananas Foster Cupcakes

I was asked to make cupcakes for a monkey themed 1 year old birthday party over the holidays so I decided to make some coconut and banana cupcakes. Not just any coconut and banana cupcakes would do, oh no, I had to amp them up a bit for some pizzaz! So I made chocolate coconut cake with a coconut frosting topped with coconut flakes and bananas foster cake with a rich caramel frosting topped with a chocolate dipped banana chip. It was a little time consuming but well worth it as the final results looked so cool. Who knew monkeying around with coconut and bananas would be so fun!
Tip: Too much coconut flavoring will burn your lips. Add cautiously.
