Picture of Orange Peel-Lined Chocolate Cupcakes
Hey guys! This is a spin off of the classic campfire cake that you would wrap in tinfoil and throw into the campfire to bake. It's a super easy, super delicious chocolate cupcake with an orange peel as the cupcake liner. These cupcakes will be an autumn treat that everyone will enjoy!

Step 1: Gathering the Ingredients and Equipment

To make the cupcakes you will need:
- 1 box of chocolate cake mix, or your own recipe for chocolate cake mix
- the ingredients for your recipe, or according to your cake box
- 12 oranges
- 1 wooden spoon
- 1 smaller, metal spoon
- 1 ladle
- 1 knife
- a cutting board
- 2 bowls, 1 large and 1 medium
- 2 cupcake pans

To make the frosting you will need:
- 2 tbsp of softened butter
- 4 cups of powdered sugar
- 1 tsp of vanilla
- 4 tbsp of milk
- 1 medium mixing bowl
- an electric mixer
- a sifter
- a spatula
- plastic wrap

Step 2: Mixing the Batter

Mix together the box of cake mix with the appropriate ingredients, or prepare your own recipe as you normally would in your large mixing bowl. I used a mix from the store because it was a lot faster and easier. Set aside.

Step 3: Slice 'N' Scoop

Take the oranges and, using your knife and cutting board, cut each in half so that you now have 24 orange halves. Then, take your metal spoon and scoop the flesh out of the peel. Place the fruit of the orange in one of your medium-size bowls and set aside.

Looks tasty - I love orange and chocolate together.

Very nice job on the step-by-step pictures, too.
