NotesBackstory: I got the cupcake recipe from http://coconutlime.blogspot.com/ and the frosting from Epicurious. At the time, I only had a muffin tin that made 6. I thought I would be clevar and "make" one out of a cake pan and various foil snakes. It's not so much a good idea. I went out and bought a 12-cup muffin tin the next day.
