Orange Cupcakes

Orange Cupcakes are a delicious little bites. I was craving for these orange flavored cupcakes for few days & decided to put an end to that misery. One fine day I made these orange flavored, nutella frosted cupcakes & fell in love with them again & again. I always loved how the combo of orange & chocolate tasted, so thought of frosting them with chocolate butter cream. Later I decided to use nutella layering as it is simple & readily available in pantry. I didn't sprinkle them with edible confetti but you can add it to make colorful & yum.
