"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!"
