MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 5, 2015

"These cupcakes are EXCEPTIONALLY MOUTH WATERING GOOD!!! As soon as I pulled them from the oven I was so eager to taste one that I put a few in the frig so as to cool them fast and was I surprised. The flavor is GREAT. I would suggest that you eat them cold for they taste much better when they are cold. I started a new batch doubling the recipe and added some orange rind (3 table spoons) and the orange flavor is a tad more intense. In all I made 36 and they all disappeared the same day."

"I'd try these, but whenever I make cake or cupcakes from scratch they turn out SO heavy.  Maybe I'll utilize the frosting for something else tho.
