How to Use an Orange Rind for a Cupcake Liner

For these Orange Cupcake Liners you will need:

    • 3 Oranges
    • Cake batter of your choice (We love this muffin recipe from Super Healthy Kids)
    • Paring knife
    • Cupcake pan (affiliate link)
    • this genius baking tip!


Cut your orange in half along the equator of the orange, try to cut only the peel and not the actual fruit to make it easier to get the fruit out.

Then stick your fingers between the peel and the fruit and break the seal, releasing the fruit while keeping the peel intact.

Take your orange peel halves and set them in the cupcake tin. Whip up your favorite cake batter and pour it into your new orange peel cupcake liners.

Bake as directed in your recipe, about 15 minutes for most cupcakes.
