DIRECTIONS

  • Cupcakes: Preheat oven to 350°F Prepare baking pans with cupcake liners.
  • In a large bowl, whisk baking soda, flour and salt. In a small bowl, combine the buttermilk and sour cream; set aside.
  • In separate bowl, using an electric mixer at medium speed, beat butter until smooth. Slowly add sugar, beat until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time.
  • Add extract and 2 to 4 drops food coloring (optional), mixing well.
  • Add flour mixture alternating with buttermilk mixture. Mix until well combined.
  • Pour into baking cups to 3/4 full. Bake approximately 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cupcake comes out clean. Remove from oven, and allow to cool completely on wire rack before assembling.
  • Orange Buttercream Frosting: Blend butter until smooth; slowly add confectioners' sugar until combined. Add vanilla and water; mix at low speed 1 minute, then at high speed for 5 minutes. Set aside 1 cup frosting. Add extract and food coloring to remaining frosting, mixing well.
  • Vanilla Buttercream Filling: In a medium bowl, fold in non-dairy whipped topping, 1/2 cup at a time, into the 1 cup of reserved frosting. Whisk until smooth.
  • To assemble cupcakes: Fill a pastry bag fitted with a large open star tip with Vanilla Buttercream Filling. Insert the tip halfway into the center of the baked cupcake; press until the top of cupcake begins to rise slightly. After filling cupcakes, frost as desired.
