Last Friday I shared this amazing blood orange cocktail. Today I’m continuing the theme with these delicately flavored blood orange cupcakes.
They are made with a classic vanilla cupcake batter flavored with a touch of Solerno blood orange liqueur (my current liqueur obsession). The buttercream is a made with dark cocoa powder, fresh blood orange juice, and a secret ingredient that makes those two flavors shine like there is no tomorrow.
I’m starting to freak out just thinking of everything I have to prepare for tomorrow (I’m cooking the entire meal) but at the same time looking forward to it. What are your plans for Thanksgiving?
By the way, if you have any office potlucks coming up these blood orange cupcakes would be the perfect dessert to share. They are small and light enough that no one will want to skip dessert.
I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving surrounded by those you love.
Thanks so much for reading and sharing! x-j
