Orange Cream Pop Cupcakes

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line twenty-seven 2-1/2-inch muffin cups with foil bake cups. Set aside 2 teaspoons of the gelatin for the Cream Pop Frostings. In a mixing bowl beat the remaining gelatin, the cake mix, pudding mix, orange juice, eggs, oil, and vanilla.
  2. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups, filling each about two-thirds full. Use the back of a spoon to smooth out batter in cups.
  3. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in centers comes out clean. Cool cupcakes in muffin cups on wire racks for 5 minutes. Remove cupcakes from muffin cups. Cool completely on wire racks.
  4. Spoon orange-flavor Cream Pop Frosting into a pastry bag fitted with a large round tip. Spoon the vanilla-flavor Cream Pop Frosting into another pastry bag fitted with a small star tip. Pipe orange frosting onto each cupcake to cover the top. Pipe a medium-size star of white frosting onto each cupcake. If desired, insert a crafts stick into top of each cupcake. Makes 27 (2-1/2-inch) cupcakes.

Cream Cheese Frosting

Directions

They were great a hit at the bake sale

As a cupcake, these are delicious. The batter turned out perfectly - wouldn't change a thing. For the frosting I added both orange juice and orange gelatin to get (a) a better consistency and (b) more orange flavour. I also sprinkled orange sugar on top of the cupcakes after they were iced, and they were a huge hit.

This is a personal preference but I prefer stronger citrus flavor. The cupcakes don't really seem cheesecakey..just mild orange. And the frosting needed more orange. A few drops of orange oil in the frosting and the cake batter would've helped the flavor for me. I made this in my cake pop maker and it worked OK...As a cake pop it's fluffy and I needed to work to get the stick to stay still. As a cupcake it will be light and fluffy.
