Gluten free creamy orange cupcakes

As promised, here is my gluten-free orange creamy cupcakes recipe. I topped these with a swirl of creamy vanilla buttercream frosting using a piping bag fitted with a round nozzle and decorated them with a pastel mix of funfetti to match my pastel coloured cake stand.
