gluten free coconut cupcakes with key lime icing frosting

Thanks everyone for your cupcake suggestions.  The idea for these gluten free Coconut Key Lime Cupcakes came from comments left by sas and laura in my Jelly Donut Cupcake post –the post that launched my own personal month of cupcakes.

These gluten free cupcakes were a real winner with my children.  Whenever I get out the icing bag, they go bonkers and yesterday was no different.  I had to hold them back when they arrived home from school, so that I could get a couple of these cupcakes frosted the way I wanted for a quick photo shoot.  Once I put down the icing bag, my younger son set to work on icing the rest of the batch.  He did a great job and had a good time while my older son ate them.  Cupcake fun was had by all.
