what you need
  • 2 large oranges
  • 1 pkg. (18.25 oz.) spice cake mix
  • 3 eggs
  • 1-3/4 cups butter, room temperature, divided
  • 2 tsp. orange zest, divided
  • 2 pkg. (16 oz. each) confectioners' sugar
  • Yellow and red food coloring to make an orange color
  • Yellow, orange, red, green and brown sprinkles for decoration
make it
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line 18 muffin cups with liners. Squeeze 3/4 cup juice from oranges. In large bowl, on medium speed, beat cake mix, eggs, orange juice, 1/2 cup water, 1/4 cup butter and 1 tsp. zest until combined. On med-high speed beat until smooth and thickened. Divide batter among liners.

Bake 18-20 min or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 min. Transfer to racks, cool completely.

In another bowl, on medium speed, beat remaining 1-1/2 cups butter until smooth, gradually beat in sugar until light & fluffy. Beat in remaining 1 tsp. zest. Tint frosting with orange food coloring, (mixed from the combined yellow and red colors). Spread frosting over cupcakes, garnish with sprinkles.
These are beautiful to look at, and yummy to eat.
