Now what would a party be without a cupcake? So my blogoversary week long celebration continues today with a cupcake recipe. I absolutely love the recipe I have on my site for the lemon cupcakes with lemon buttercream. So with my love for citrus lately when I saw a recipe over at Canela and Comino for fresh orange cupcakes I had to try it. I decided to top them of with my version of an orange buttercream frosting.
I was hoping for the crumb in the cake to be similar to the lemon cupcakes. However, this cupcakes was a little more like a muffin consistency. So I thought they were good, but not knock your socks off. I think the lemon cake has spoiled me now. I think I am going to try to take elements from the lemon cupcakes and elements from the orange cupcake and try to make a moister version. However, this cake was still great, I was just hoping for a moister cake than this gave. The orange buttercream frosting, however, turned out perfect.
Now for today’s giveaway.
