    RecipeNut's Note:

    The chocolate garnish on these luscious cupcakes marries well with the Grand Marnier. If chocolate is your passion, serve the cupcakes with a pitcher of dark chocolate sauce on the side

      This is a wonderful recipe, easy to follow, and the cupcakes are delicious. I added slightly more orange zest than called for - just love citrus, and made the topping in the microwave, but otherwise followed the recipe. I just spooned the topping over the cakes because I tend to be challenged by decorative effects. Even made by me, these still look quite nice, I think, though they won't last long. Thank you very much for this recipe.
