CAKE:
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon orange extract
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 teaspoon baking soda
2/3 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon orange food coloring (optional)
1 1/3 cups flour
1 cup buttermilk

Heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a cupcake sheet with 12 paper liners.

Using an electric mixer, beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg, orange and vanilla extracts, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and food coloring, beating well after each addition.

With the mixer on low speed, alternately add the flour and milk, in three additions. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed.

Portion the batter evenly and bake for about 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into a cupcake comes out clean. Allow cupcake to cool before adding filling and frosting.



FILLING:
8 tablespoons butter
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup marshmallow fluff
1-1/4 teaspoons vanilla extract
Pinch of salt

Using an electric mixer beat butter until fluffy. On a low speed add powdered sugar and salt and mix well before adding the marshmallow fluff and vanilla extract.

To fill the cupcake, add the filling to a pastry bag. Using a round tip, insert the tip so that it’s a little more than half way down the cupcake. While pushing the filling into the cupcake pull the tip out of the cupcake.
Alternatively, you can use a small knife to carve a small cylinder of cake out and fill with the
filling.


FROSTING:
3 cups powdered sugar
1/3 cup butter
1-1/2 teaspoons orange extract

Using an electric mixer cream the butter until smooth. Add the orange extract. On low speed gradually add the powdered sugar. Scrape the sides as needed add the cream and orange food coloring. Beat on a high speed until the frosting is light and fluffy. Spread over the top of the cupcakes.
