In a large bowl, cream together sugar and coconut oil until light and fluffy.  Beat the eggs in one at a time. Add the yogurt, lime zest and lime juice.  Slowly mix in the flour mixture. Gently fold in half the blueberries. Spoon batter into a lined muffin pan and top with the remaining 1 cup of blueberries. Bake in the middle rack of a pre-heated 350F/160C oven for 35-40 minutes or until cake tester comes out clean. Cool for 30 minutes in the muffin pan, then invert on a cooling rack. Cool completely before frosting.

In a large bowl, using a hand mixer, cream together the shredded coconut, coconut oil, butter, lime zest, lime juice and salt. Blend in the sifted icing sugar until creamy. Let icing stand for a few hours at room temperature to thicken. Frost onto cooled cupcakes. Garnish with blueberries and coconut.
