Henry Bowes’s Carrot, Pineapple, and Coconut Cupcakes

This recipe came from my grandmother’s carrot cake recipe that I changed into cupcakes. The frosting recipe is from my favorite professional baker Ina Garten. I learned how to make the rainbow design by watching a video online. My grandmother taught me how to bake and I hope to one day own my own bakery.
