Creamy Coconut Cupcakes

If you haven't noticed by the design on this page, I am slightly obsessed with cupcakes.  This is by far the best cupcake recipe I've ever tried!!!  I made these for my cousin's baby shower and they were a big hit.

1 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 & 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup heavy cream
3/4 cup shredded coconut

1 stick of soft butter
16 oz. cream cheese
2 lbs. powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
4 oz. coconut cream instant Jell-O pudding

Cupcakes:  Cream butter, sugar and eggs until fluffy.  Add vanilla.  Mix.
Combine dry ingredients in a bowl.  Add half of that mixture to your first mixture. Stir.  Add milk and cream.  Add remaining dry mixture.  Fold shredded coconut in.  Bake 20-25 minutes at 350*.  Cool.

Frosting:  Cream the butter and cream cheese.  Slowly add powdered sugar.  Mix.  Add pudding mix.  Frost cupcakes and top with toasted coconut.
