1st try: two stars because of the wrong instructions about baking soda! i ended up with very bitter-tasting cupcakes because i added 1 tablespoon each of baking soda and baking powder. It's supposed to be 1 tablespoom baking POWDER and 1 tsp baking SODA. other than that, taste and texture were perfect. i'm about to make another batch, i'm assuming the next batch will be perfect!

Moist flavorful muffin. Too late did I discover I didn't have the white chips that I thought I had, so I coarsely chopped some white chocolate wafers I had instead. Made for Adopt an Orphaned Tag Fall '07. :)

Thank you Redsie for sharing this wonderful recipe. The cupcakes are amazing. I loved the combination of orange, white chocolate and coconut. They complimented one another beautifully. This quick and easy to make cupcake was big, light, had a tender crumb, great flavor and nice texture.
