Divide the batter evenly among the cupcake liners, filling each two-thirds full.
Bake until golden and a toothpick comes out clean, 15 to 20 minutes.
Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Place the coconut on a baking sheet and toast until lightly browned, about 5 minutes.

Combine the heavy cream, sugar, stabilizer, vanilla extract and vanilla bean in a large bowl.
Whip with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form, and then transfer into a pastry bag fitted with a wide tip.

Pipe out 2 tablespoons of frosting onto each cupcake and top with 1 teaspoon of the toasted coconut and 1 raspberry.
