My niece wanted an orange cupcakes for her birthday. Having never made an orange cake recipe, I read several recipes and chose this one. The instructions are easy to follow; the ingredients blend very well together; the prep time is very accurate. I baked 12 regular-sized cupcakes and 24 mini-cupcakes for 15 minutes at 350°F, and they turned out beautifully. Since I was baking the recipe as cupcakes, I did not substitute with pudding or sour cream, but if I bake this as a cake, I the substitution, because I can see where some dryness might occur. We have several diabetics in our family, and so I made an even substitution of Truvia for sugar, and no one could tell the difference.
I left several of the cupcakes un-iced, and I thought those were better. I followed the icing recipe, but it never set and was extremely sweet. I thought the icing overpowered the cupcakes, and I could not eat the iced ones. I have added the cake recipe to my box, but I will keep looking for a complementary icing recipe. The icing is what kept me from giving this overall recipe five stars.
