Carrot Cake Cupcakes with Coconut Cream Cheese Frosting

"These cupcakes are the perfect combination of  spiced carrot cake and creamy coconut frosting.  They would make the perfect treat for even the Easter Bunny himself!"   

Carrot Cupcakes:
1 Duncan Hines Carrot Cake Mix 
eggs, oil and water called for on the box
Cupcake liners

Prepare cake mix according to package directions.  Divide cake batter into cupcake liners, filling each about 2/3 full.  Bake following box instructions for cupcakes.  Allow cupcakes to cool completely and frost and decorate.
Coconut Cream Cheese Frosting:
1-(8 ounce) package of cream cheese, softened
2 sticks or 1 cup of butter, softened
2 pound bag of powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 Tablespoons milk
1 (7 ounce) package of sweetened flake coconut 
Easter candies (I decorated my cupcakes with carrot cake flavored candy corn)
Cream together cream cheese and butter.  Add powdered sugar a little at a time until all combined.  Add vanilla and milk.  Stir in coconut.  Frost cupcakes and decorate.  Store in refrigerator until ready to eat.
"Happy Easter to all of my Family, Friends and Followers!"
