I have done it. I have not only replicated them but made them better. Made with fresh oranges, they are very fragrant and pack a lot of flavor. The secret to amazing texture is cake flour. Cake flour contains a lower protein content than all-purpose flour and it is also ground much more finer.

Step 1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C). Line muffin tin with paper cups or grease. Using a handheld mixer whip up Unsalted Butter (1/2 cup). Add Granulated Sugar (1/2 cup) and Orange (2 1/2 teaspoon) and continue to beat.
Step 2
Add Egg (1), juice from the Orange (1) and Milk (2 tablespoon) and beat for 2 minutes.
Step 3
In another bowl, combine Cake Flour (1 1/2 cup), Baking Powder (1 1/4 teaspoon) and Salt (1/4 teaspoon). Mix well. Add to butter mixture and mix until fully incorporated.
Step 4
Fill muffin cups 3/4 full. Bake for approximately 20 minutes. Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack.
Step 5
Using a handheld mixer, whip Marshmallow Fluff (1/2 cup), Powdered Confectioners Sugar (1 cup), Crisco (1/4 cup), Milk (1 tablespoon) and Vanilla Extract (1 teaspoon) until fluffy.
Step 6
Fill a piping bag with frosting and with a cupcake filling tip, fill cupcakes when they have cooled.
Step 7
Combine Powdered Confectioners Sugar (1 cup), Meringue Powder (1 tablespoon), juice from the Orange (1/2) and Orange (1 pinch) adding more sugar until it reaches desired consistency.
Step 8
The meringue powder hardens the glaze slightly. Dip filled cupcake tops into the glaze. Switch piping bag tip to make a squiggly line with remaining frosting (optional). Enjoy!
