Chocolate Orange Mini Cakes Recipe for Parties

Today is my birthday, so I guess I am craving special occasion cakes. 
Here’s a sweet story that I found on Design*Sponge: bakerette Allyson Baker annouced to her co-workers that she had a bun in the oven by presenting them with these darling (& delicious) cupcakes. 
We scored the recipe ~ so be sure to try them out for a party, a wedding shower or even for the big day for something casually out-of-this world.
1 Box Chocolate Cake Mix
Replace Water with Orange Juice
Replace Oil with Grape Seed Oil
1/2 Orange Zested
Follow box directions with the added and replaced ingredients. For parchment cupcake papers cut 3 1/4” squares and squish down into cupcake pan.

4 Cups Powdered Sugar
8 Tablespoons Butter, Softened
3 Tablespoons Orange Juice (add more juice if needed)
1 Orange Zested
Mix all the ingredients until smooth. Use a round piping tip to pipe the icing. Zest an additional orange for to garnish and sprinkle a little sugar on top.
