These cupcakes are my kids favorite snack to bring in their lunch boxes. They are so good that even the teachers would write me a letter requesting the recipe. Enjoy!

Top Review by Sugar Fairy

This was the first time I've made a cheese cupcake, and I was pleasantly surprised. The orange extract adds a really nice touch. The cakes were light and fluffy. I sent a good portion of them to work with my brother, and everyone there loved them..even a person who does not like cheese, said that they were excellent and ate more than one. I personally would like more cheese in them next time. Thank you!
