Fill cupcake paper things 3/4 full. Bake 20 minutes.

(that's what he said, but I didn't find it to be enough time. Check to see if done by putting a clean knife into the middle of ye olde cupcake and it should come out clean - I went another 10 minutes).

Let cool 10 minutes before Icing.

Sour Cream Icing

Mandarin (I used orange) Zest
