Coconut Cupcakes with Coconut Cream Cheese Frosting

I love coconut and cupcakes.  These are pretty easy, a white cake mix with a twist.  Very coconutty flavor, light and fluffy cake and creamy coconut cream cheese frosting.

Coconut Cupcakes:
1 box white cake mix
1 cup coconut milk
1/4 cup oil
3 tsp coconut extract
3 egg whites

Preheat oven to 350°.  Line cupcake pan with papers (makes about 18).  In large bowl with electric mixer, whip cake mix, coconut milk, oil, coconut extract and egg whites until well combined.  Evenly distribute batter between cups.  Bake 18-20 minutes.  Cool completely before frosting.

Coconut Cream Cheese Frosting:
1/2 cup butter, softened
3 oz cream cheese, softened
3 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp coconut extract
3 Tbl coconut milk

Cream all frosting ingredients together adding 1 Tbl of coconut milk at a time to make perfect frosting consistency.  Frost cupcakes and sprinkle with toasted coconut if desired.
