Strawberry-Coconut Cupcakes

Man-O-Man these cupcakes are good! So moist and delicious! Definatly one of my favorites for sure. My mom and I made these for my son's 1st birthday bash, sisters 16th birthday, and recently for my sister-in-laws baby shower! I am definatly not a pro cupcake maker and defiantly not a pro cupcake decorater. But we all have our strengths right!? Its a work in progress for me to perfect cupcakes so its a good thing that I made 4 different kinds of cupcakes this week! Practice makes perfect right!?
