Did you see the movie The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel?? I simply loved that movie. I am so excited to see The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel movie!!! It is opening March 6th!!! Next week!!! Sqkweeeeeee!!! I got so excited I decided to make Maharani Cupcakes!! The blend of coconut,lemon,basil and curry are a perfect combination!!! Indian food has some complex spice profiles for sure this one is no exception! This recipe is take a bit of work but I used some short cuts to make it a bit easier!!
But before I share the recipe let me tell you about the amazing Sweepstakes that Cost Plus World Market is hosting in coordination with the release of The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel it is amazing!! World Market’s Second Best Exotic Marigold Sweepstakes!!!

Sonny is returning and is planning his upcoming marriage as well as the expansion of The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.
Planning a wedding is a lot of work all on its own so to try and include a hotel expansion that is a lot on anyone’s plate!!! Here is a movie trailer!!
I totally cannot wait to see this movie but until then let me share my recipe for Maharani Cupcakes. I headed out to my local Cost Plus World Market to purchase a few items for my cupcakes!
Harrowgate Lemon Curd. Now don’t let the name scare you this is just the same as the filling of a Lemon Meringue Pie!! Tangy and Lemony so so good!
And finally I purchased Chaokoh Coconut Milk. I replaced the liquid in the cake batter with Coconut milk.
The combinations of flavors compliment each other perfectly!!! The recipe is pretty easy to follow but I made my basil infused cream the day before and put it in the fridge so it would be ready to whip up when I was ready to frost the cupcakes.
And you really only need a tablespoon on the top of the cupcake before you frost them!!
Here is the complete recipe! Enjoy!
