MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 4, 2015

"Cupcakes were totally bland, probably from too much flour and using oil instead of butter. The frosting melted all over the place when I put them out for my guests. Tried again a second time, added another tablespoon of orange extract and the cupcakes were STILL bland! I ended up making a vanilla bean frosting with an orange icing drizzle on top. That was the only thing that saved these cupcakes."

"I made these tonight as mini cupcakes using a size 60 scoop and baked for 10 to 11 minutes. The batter yields 69 minis. I decided to go with a cream cheese frosting instead of the marshmallow frosting but awesome cake batter with a zesty natural orange flavor."
