These are excellent. I was just about to share this same recipe, but found this version already posted so I thought I would offer my comments. I made these for my daughter's birthday one year and they were a big hit with the kids, now they are a favorite. These are full of lime flavor and very sweet. I garnish each with a slice of candy made to look like limes. We call these "You put the lime in the coconut" Cupcakes.
I loved these cupcakes! In all honesty, I didn't care for the frosting that much because I don't really like whipped cream frostings. But that's just my personal preference, and everybody else thought the cupcake & frosting were both amazing, so I'll stick with 5 stars for the whole thing. :)
