      Excellent muffins! I love the spice/mandarin orange combo. I had a big jar of mandarins and had no idea how much 11 ounces amounted to, so I used a cup and it worked great. I might chop up the mandarins next time so they spread out more. I subbed butter for the shortening but otherwise followed to a "t." Loved the topping! There isn't much sugar in the recipe so the topping rounds it out nicely. I didn't use the full 1/3 cup of butter, so next time I may try 2-3 tbs. Thanks for the great recipe Munchkin Mama!

      I used 1/2 cup milk, instead of 1/3. Next time I would substitue some of the milk with mandarin orange juice. I also used butter instead of the shortening. The cupcakes were to hot to hold, so I used a pastry brush to brush the butter on the cupcakes & I sprinkeled the cinnamon & sugar on the cupcakes
