Making the cupcakes:

Step 2

In a bowl, cream together the butter and the zest from the citrus fruits until light and fluffy.

Step 4

Once combined add the remaining flour and fold in.

In a pan combine the water, sugar, orange zest and vanilla.

Using a star shaped nozzle and bag, pipe a swirl of vanilla frosting on to the top of the cupcakes.
