    Loved this custard recipe! I added about a half teaspoon of coconut flavoring to give it a boost and ate some as is. Yum! I tried some in a coconut cake I made as well and it was a great compliment. The flavor isn't overwhelming so it can be eaten solo or with something else easily. I didn't like the coconut flakes though (personal preference), so next time I will probably make it without.

    Made these cupcakes and loved them. Great presentation when you put your whipped cream on with a pastry bag with a large star tip. However next time I will try a different batter for the cake itself. They turned out a bit dry for all the steps that were required for the cake batter itself.

    on the show chef Thomas Joseph recommended using this filling for a coconut cream pie -- clearly one of the easiest i've made and an excellent choice. so great!!

    Yum! I made these for my 3rd grade students and they LOVED them! They asked if I could give the recipe to their moms!! These also held up really well overnight in the fridge. Nice twist on a classic cupcake!
