Expert Tips

  • To make the orange peel garnish, carefully remove a thin strip of peel from the orange with a pairing knife. Tightly roll the peel and pinch between your fingers for a few seconds to help it hold the shape. Place on top of the frosting.
  • Alternatively, you can garnish these citrus cupcakes in a light sprinkling of orange or lemon zest.
  • Always use muffin tin liners when making cupcakes for easy cleanup!
