Orange Cupcakes That Rock

Awesome Orange Cake Cupcakes You’ll Drool Over!

Orange Cake IngredientsThere are quite a few recipe’s for the tasty orange cake and cupcakes but I put one together that just rocks! I tested several orange cake batter recipe’s and came up with my own little twist to one so I titled them the ORANGE CUPCAKES THAT ROCK…

Here you will get the ingredients I use for the recipes as well as a video I did to show you how to make them.

I also filled the orange cupcakes with an orange flavored pudding mixed with my pro cake decorators icing and then topped them off with orange flavored icing. YUMMY!

I hope you and your family will enjoy making these as much as I do. They really do rock 🙂

What you will need:

1 box orange cake mix. (Duncan Hines Has the Orange Cake Mix in Most Grocery Markets)

3 eggs

1/4 cup oil

1 cup orange juice

1/4 cup water

Orange zest from one whole orange

1/4 tsp orange extract ( You can use just a bit more but be careful with it. Taste as you go)

Cupcake Pans and Liners

How To Blend The Orange Cupcakes:

Start by pre-heating your oven to 350 degree’s

In large mixing bowl, combine orange cake mix, eggs, oil, orange juice and water.

Mix for about 2 minutes. Add the orange zest and orange extract.

Tip 1: Let your orange cake batter sit for about ten minutes before popping in the oven. This will help give the batter a bit more jump.

Tip 2: When measuring out your cupcakes, use a 1/2 cup measuring cup. This will be perfect for the height and weight of your orange cupcakes and any other cupcakes you make 🙂

Orange Cake Filling Cupcake Pans

Bake for approximately 18-20 minutes depending on your ovens calibration.

Let cool and while preparing your orange filling.

How to make the Orange Cream Filling:

Mix one small pack of instant vanilla pudding per manufacturers instructions.

Incorporate in the zest of one whole large orange.

Mix in approximately 2 cups of pro cake decorators icing, 1/2 tsp orange flavor and a bit of orange food coloring.

The consistency will look broken down. This is normal. Refrigerate until ready to fill your orange cupcakes.

How to Fill the Orange Cake Cupcakes:

Using a #2 cake decorators tip, punch out a hole in the center of the orange cupcake. You will need to give it a little twist to extract the hole out.

Using a piping bag fill the center hole with the orange cream filling.

Finishing The Cupcake With Orange Flavored and Colored Icing.

For this orange cake cupcake I used the professional cake decorators icing and flavored it with orange extract. I also used orange food coloring and orange sugar crystals to embellish. EASY PEASY:)
