Directions

1. Line cupcake tins with paper or foil liners (i prefer foil liners). Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. 2. In a large mixing bowl, sift the dry ingredients. In another bowl, mix the wet ingredients. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients bowl and mix until all dry ingredients are wet and there are no lumps. Fill the cupcake liners 2/3 full. 3. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Check at 15 minutes and then watch closely. 4. Make the Frosting: In a mixing bowl, add the vegan margarine and shortening. Mix until well combined and fluffy (about 2-3 minutes). Add the vanilla extract, orange extract and fresh squeezed orange juice, orange zest (if using) and mix until well combined. 5. Add the powdered sugar. Mix on low to combine. Then mix at higher speed until light and fluffy, 5-7 minutes.
