CARMELA'S ORANGE MARMALADE CUPCAKES
1 package Betty Crocker White Super Moist Cake Mix
1/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
6 ounces good quality orange marmalade
1 can Betty Crocker Rich and Creamy Cream Cheese Frosting
Prepare and bake the cake mix according the package directions for cupcakes.
(http://www.bettycrocker.com/) When cooled, with a skewer poke the tops of the cupcakes several times. Gently drizzle the tops of the cupcakes with the orange juice. Wait a few minutes and let the juice soak into the cupcakes. With an apple corer, gently remove a plug out of the center of the cake, making sure that you do not cut through to the bottom.
Put the marmalade in a zip-lock bag and seal tightly. Cut a small corner of the bag and pipe the marmalade into the center of the cupcake level with the top. Save remaining marmalade. Frost cupcakes as you like. With the remaining marmalade, garnish the top of each cake with a dollop.
