Why I Love This Recipe

This is another cheater recipe - it's quick and easy, so hopefully you can use it to impress when you are in a hurry!

Ingredients You'll Need

1 box Duncan Hines Devil's Food Cake Mix OR your fav. chocolate cake recipe
1 can of vanilla icing (I like the whipped kind) OR your fav. recipe
1 seedless orange
Orange extract


Prep recipe as directed (I subbed applesauce/egg sub). Mix in 1-3 tsp. orange extract (depending on your taste).

Fill cupcakes and bake as directed.

Mix icing and 1-3+ tsp. vanilla extract. Ice cupcakes.

Zest and slice the orange.

Sprinkle the zest on top of the icing and then place an orange slice on top.

I also did this recipe with vanilla cake mix since some people don't like chocolate as much as I do :)
