Malibu Rum (coconut) Cupcakes

I got this receipe from howsweeteats.com. This is so yummy and just screams summer!!! Pictures to come. I doubled the cupcake part of the receipe and I had more than enough frosting by just doing the single receipe of the frosting. Took these into work and everyone couldn't stop raving about how good they were! Also, I cooked the first batch for the 20 minutes the receipe calls for and they were a bit over cooked. The rest of them I cooked for about 17 mintues and they were much better.
