Why I Love This Recipe

Yummy dessert!!

Ingredients You'll Need

1 box orange cake mix

1 box vanilla pudding mix

substitute water listed on box with buttermilk

substitute oil listed on box with melted butter

add 1/4 cup flour (I use spelt flour)

add eggs listed on box + 1

1 tsp vanilla flavoring

1 tsp orange extract flavoring

zest from 2 navel oranges

1/4 cup softened butter

4 oz cream cheese

3-4 cups confectioners’ sugar

1 tsp vanilla flavoring

1 tsp orange extract flavoring

zest from 1 naval orange

juice from 1 naval orange (won't need all of it but enough of it to get the icing to the proper consistency)


For the cake, when mixing ingredients together, be careful not to "over mix." Cook per box instructions.

For the icing:

Mix cream cheese and butter until fluffy then add flavorings.  Once that is blended in, start adding sugar and orange juice until amount and consistency you desire.

Frost when cupcakes have cooled.  For garnish, I had 1/2 candy orange slice to top of cupcakes.
