    Heat oven to 350°F. Place paper baking cup in each of 24 regular-size muffin cups.

    In large bowl, beat all cupcake ingredients with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds. Beat on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Divide batter evenly among muffins cups.

    Bake 18 to 22 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes; remove cupcakes from pans to cooling racks. Cool completely.

    In 2-quart saucepan, stir sugar and water until well mixed. Cover and heat to rolling boil over medium heat. Uncover and boil 4 to 8 minutes, without stirring, to 242°F-248°F on candy thermometer. Pour hot syrup very slowly in thin stream into egg whites, beating constantly on low speed. Add vanilla, orange peel and orange juice. Beat on high speed 7 to 10 minutes or until stiff peaks form and side of bowl is cool to the touch.

    Frost cupcakes. Garnish with orange slices. Store in refrigerator.

  • These cupcakes are best eaten the day they’re made.
  • Try experimenting with different varieties of beer to change the flavor of your cupcake. Cooking with beer is fun!
  • If you don’t have a candy thermometer, you can check if the sugar syrup has reached the firm-ball stage by dropping a small amount of the mixture into a cup of very cold water; if it forms a firm ball that holds its shape when pressed, it’s ready to be added to the egg whites.
