Coconut Cupcakes

I asked The Mister what sort of birthday dessert he'd like, and his 
response was - "Something with coconut". 
I knew just the recipe - the coconut cupcakes from Ina Garten's Barefoot Contessa Cookbook.  
I'd wanted to try it for my cookbook shelf purge recipe testing, but it didn't make the cut.

This makes a LOT of cupcakes.  
It fed us for the birthday dinner, I sent some home with my parents, gave some to 
our friends, and still had a bunch left over to take to work.  
They sure are good though.  
Warning - the recipe makes a ridiculous amount of frosting.  
More than you could ever want or need.  I halved the recipe and still had a ton 
left after frosting all 11,472 cupcakes.
