  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Farenheit. Place 2 muffin cup liners in each of 12 muffin cups. Coat liners with cooking spray.
  • To measure flour, weigh or lightly spoon it into measuring cup and level with knife. Combine flour, potato starch, baking powder, and salt in a small bowl and whisk.
  • Combine 3/4 cup sugar and 2 tbsp softened butter in a large bowl and beat with mixer at medium speed until blended. Blend until the consistency is similar to damp sand.
  • One at a time, add egg and beat well then add egg white and beat well.
  • Add flour mixture and milk alternately, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Fold in coconut and vanilla.
  • Spoon cupcake batter evenly into the prepared muffin cups. Bake at 350F for 18 minutes or until surface springs back up when lightly touched in center.
  • Prepare frosting. To do so, combine 3 tbsp of softened butter, half-and-half, grated lime rind, and lime juice in a medium bowl. Beat with a mixer at medium speed until smooth. Gradually add powdered sugar and beat until smooth.
  • Spread approximately 2 1/2 tsp of frosting onto each cupcake.
