Mandarin Orange Butter Cup Cakes

i made these cup cakes with the two korean sisters - jenda and victoria! they came over to my house to play and wanted to bake something! they call my home the mini bakery haha. yupp so i found this simple recipe from alex goh's "creative making of cakes" but modified it a little. haha more importantly i had all the ingredients for it :p i definitely had fun baking with the kids!

little princess victoria is helping me sieve the flour :)

say "cheese'! i love her to bits; she's soooo adorable!
