PREHEAT oven to 350° F. Line cupcake tins with 32 paper or foil liners.
SIFT flour, baking powder and salt into medium bowl.
BEAT egg whites in large mixer bowl until soft peaks form. With mixer on, gradually beat in sugar. Beat in egg yolks one at a time, beating well after each addition. Alternately beat in flour mixture with milk, starting and ending with the flour mixture. Beat in vanilla extract.
SPOON batter into prepared cupcake tins, filling only 1/2 full (be sure to not overfill or the tres leches sauce will overflow).
BAKE for 15 to 20 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in cupcake comes out clean. Cool in pan on wire rack for 10 minutes. While cupcakes are cooling, make tres leches sauce.
FOR TRES LECHES SAUCE:
WHISK together all but 2 tablespoons sweetened condensed milk, evaporated milk and coconut milk in a large glass measuring cup.
POKE holes in the cupcakes using a wooden pick, skewer or fork, penetrating to the bottom of the liner.
SPOON tres leches sauce over each cupcake, one tablespoon at a time. After it soaks in, add a little more. Each cupcake should hold about 3 tablespoons sauce.
COVER with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 4 hours. Cupcakes can be refrigerated overnight.
BEAT cream in small mixer bowl until stiff peaks form. Fold in remaining 2 tablespoons sweetened condensed milk. Right before serving the cupcakes, add a dollop of whipped cream over each cupcake. Sprinkle with toasted coconut.
