Coconut Cupcakes

I couldn't take my mind off these beautiful coconut cupcakes. The leftover shredded coconut I had from an ambrosia salad were just begging to be baked up in cupcakes. 

Cuckoo for coconuts...YUM YUM!

As I was reading up on the recipe, there were many comments about how good the cupcake was on its own so I skipped frosting them altogether. These were little explosions of coconut. Delish! When I bake them again, I'll top them with Chocolate Buttercream Frosting. YUMMO!
