These cupcakes are EXCEPTIONALLY MOUTH WATERING GOOD!!! As soon as I pulled them from the oven I was so eager to taste one that I put a few in the frig so as to cool them fast and was I surprised. The flavor is GREAT. I would suggest that you eat them cold for they taste much better when they are cold. I started a new batch doubling the recipe and added some orange rind (3 table spoons) and the orange flavor is a tad more intense. In all I made 36 DELICIOUS cupcakes and they all disappeared the same day, I ate most of them, Ha.....

I'd try these, but whenever I make cake or cupcakes from scratch they turn out SO heavy. Maybe I'll utilize the frosting for something else tho. :)

These cupcakes were delicious! However, the preparation took me longer than what is listed on the recipe. I also had to make extra topping. What the recipe calls for wasn't enough...maybe I just like coconut too much!
