Coconut Cupcakes with Coconut Buttercream Frosting

Really though these are one of my all time favorite cupcakes. Who knows maybe I say that a lot but these would definitely make it to top 5 – along with Chocolate Cupcpakes, Vanilla Bean Cupcakes, Pineapple Upside Down Cupcakes or Pina Colada Cupcakes (they’re just too cute with those little tiny umbrellas), and Carrot Cake Cupcakes (and they carrot decoration is a must :)).
