Chocolate and Orange is a devilish and yet a morish combination. Of all the ways I love my cakes, the refreshing flavor of strong citrus has to be the best.
We had just got back seeing Toy Story 3 in the theaters. The movie was followed by a brief playtime in the fountains at the harbor side – the kids had a blast running around cooling off as the fountains drenched them with gallons of water. A sudden baking urge in the afternoon and a need of some fresh cool flavors in this typical Texas summer, created the cupcakes. These are the cupcakes in the basic form but with robust citrusy flavor. If your inclination is towards a light chocolate free one, use the recipe but omit the chocolate.
