Preparation of the recipe:

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Line a regular sized muffin tin with cupcake papers.

Sift flour, baking powder and salt together in a bowl.

In a measuring cup combine egg whites, coconut milk and extracts.

Cream together sugar and butter with an electric mixer on medium speed.

Blend until butter lightens in color and texture, 4 minutes.

Alternately add dry and wet ingredients, starting and ending with dry, in 3 additions.

Fold in coconut using a rubber spatula.

Scoop batter into prepared tin, filling each about 3/4 full.

Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center of a cupcake comes out clean, 25-30 minutes.

Cool in the pan 5 minutes; remove completely.

For frosting, beat cream cheese and butter with an electric mixer until smooth.

Add melted white chocolate and lime juice; beat to blend.

Add powdered sugar and beat until smooth (it will be gooey).

Spread 3 Tbsp frosting on each cupcake.

Top cupcakes with coconut.
