For the frosting:

  4. Spoon the batter into the cupcake liners.
  5. Bake at 375 degrees for about 20 minutes until the tops are lightly golden brown. Cool on wire rack.

  2. Add the orange juice and continue to mix.
  3. Add the confectioner's sugar and non-dairy milk a little bit at a time until you reach the desired consistency (this was a thicker frosting).
