Coconut Cupcakes

I participate in the Martha Stewart Cupcakes Club blog group and this month the recipe was Coconut Cupcakes chosen by Jennifer of Cinema Cupcakes.  I was totally skeptical about this cupcake.  I like coconut, but I don't usually make anything with it.  I was super happy with this recipe and I will definitely make it again.  The cupcake is flavored with sweetened shredded coconut, unsweetened coconut milk, and coconut water.  Now, the recipe doesn't call for coconut water, but I decided to use it as a flavoring for my swiss meringue buttercream.  It was the first time ever that I made SMB frosting and I was afraid I ruined it, but it actually turned out just fine!  I also used the sweetened coconut as a garnish instead of the unsweetened coconut flakes that Martha called for.  If you love coconut... you need to try this recipe.  It rocks!  Thanks Jennifer for such a great pick!
