  1. Cake: Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C and line a 12 hole muffin tray with paper cases.
  2. Put the butter, sugar and eggs in a bowl and mix until light and fluffy. This is quicker to do if you have an electric mixer.
  3. Sieve the flours and then add to the egg mixture with the coconut, sour cream and frozen raspberries. Divide mixture among the muffin cases; smooth the surfaces as much as you can.
  4. Bake cakes for about 25 minutes then check with skewer and then if they need it give them maybe another 5 or so minutes; leave to cool.
  5. Icing: Place softened butter and cream cheese in a bowl with the coconut milk then mix until smooth, this can take some time.
  6. When smooth gradually add the icing sugar continuing to mix until combined.
  7. Decorations: Place a heaped teaspoon of the cream cheese icing onto each cake and then spread to the edges. Place 3 raspberries onto each cake and then sprinkle with the desiccated coconut. Serve.
