    I would agree that this is a delicious cupcake, but I found the texture to be very dense and rich, not airy and light. The cake flour gives it a tender crumb, but the buttermilk and coconut make it very heavy. Add the thick cream cheese frosting and you've got a decadent treat indeed! This is one of Ina's most popular recipes. You can even buy her exact cupcake mix for this at William Sonoma.
