These were great for Halloween. I didn't have cider vinegar so used rice wine vinegar after reading through the recipe and deciding the acid was used for chemical reaction not taste so much. Would definitely make again.
There were a few problems with this recipe, but they get four stars because they were still delicious! I made them as written. First, the cake did not rise around the filling. I'm not sure what to change to make that happen, but it did make for a very pretty cupcake. Also, the filling doesn't 'ooze', I didn't expect it to because of the egg, but I wanted to make it as written. I think it might work if you just eliminated the egg.The filling was more of cheesecake consistency. I also needed much more than the amount of food coloring stated to get a good orange color. I can't tell you how much or what ratio, I just kept adding until I was happy with it. The cake part was absolutely delicious with and without the filling! So, this wasn't exactly what I was expecting but still turned out great. Thanks!
