This sounds great, but does the orange shell bake mushie?
No, it doesn't get mushy at all...it actually stays quite fresh because of the foil :)
I am always looking for new ideas for dessert for my residents at a senior community. This sould great but what kind of frosting would you use. I was thinking of maybe making an orange buttercream with the orange that was scooped out.
how many cupcakes does this make? what size of orange would be better? what would be the best frosting match for this?
Sorry I didn't see these comments sooner! I used an Italian meringue frosting, but an orange flavored frosting would be very nice.
I just used regular sized navel oranges, and I can't remember how many it made, sorry!
Might seem like a silly question, but are the cupcakes served in the orange or do you remove them from the orange prior to serving?
