Orange Cupcakes

As salam and good day everyone...

Sorry for the delay. I have been busy lately. Here is a recipe that never failed me. Easy, simple and delicious. Do try.... I cannot remember which website, but the recipe is definitely not mine. :) Thank you to the owner for sharing such a lovely recipe. 



Cupcakes

½ cup butter (I used margerine)
¾ cup sugar ( I used 1/2 cup and 1 tbsp)
Zest of 2 oranges
2 eggs
½ teaspoon vanilla
½ teaspoon orange oil ( I avoid)
1 ½ cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
Pinch of salt
¼ cup milk
¼ cup orange juice
6 oranges, halved cored (12 skins) ( I avoid)

Icing

1 package cream cheese (such as Philadelphia)
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons orange juice concentrate
½ teaspoon vanilla
1 ½ to 2 cups sugar (or more to taste)
Orange peel, flake colored sugar, etc..(Optional)
For cupcakes In a bowl, mix the flour, baking powder and salt and set aside. In a large bowl, beat butter, sugar and orange zest until creamy, about 3 minutes. Add vanilla, orange oil if used and eggs one at a time, beating one minute after each addition. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients in three stages, alternating with the milk and orange juice taking care to begin and end with the dry ingredients. Divide all also within 12 orange peels cored and raised in the cavities of a muffin pan. Bake on center rack at 350 ° for 20 to 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center of a cupcake comes out clean. Unmold and cool completely before frosting. For ice Beat cream cheese and butter until smooth and creamy, about 5 minutes. Add orange juice concentrate and vanilla and beat well again. Add the icing sugar a little at a time, until desired consistency. Frost the cupcakes with a spatula or pocket socket and garnish with orange peel, flake colored sugar, candy or other tas
