  • 1 box orange cake mix
  • 3 eggs
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 2 sticks butter, softened to room temperature
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 Tbsp heavy cream
  • 1 Duncan Hines Orange Creme Frosting Creations packet
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • Whipped cream
  • Orange gummy candies
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 2 muffin tins with 18 paper liners and set aside. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, beat together the cake mix, eggs, oil and orange juice with a handheld electric mixer or until smooth.
  2. Portion the batter evenly among the muffin cups, filling about ¾th of the way full. Bake for approx. 14-16 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean or with moist crumbs. Cool the cupcakes completely.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter, vanilla extract, heavy cream and Duncan Hines Orange Creme packet together for about a minute or until creamy. Gradually add the powdered sugar about a cup at a time until the frosting is light and fluffy.
  4. Pipe the frosting high onto the cooled cupcakes; top with a dollop of whipped cream. Garnish with an orange gummy slice.
