These lemon orange cupcakes take things up a notch by including olive oil. From Sugar and Cloth, the tasty homemade treats are olive oil cake but in miniature form. The citrus element makes the dessert ideal for summer time, with a light and fresh taste that pairs nicely with the moistness of the olive oil cupcake.

To make a batch of your own lemon and orange cupcakes, you will need sugar, eggs, lemon-infused olive oil, extra virgin olive oil, vanilla extract, freshly squeezed orange juice, orange zest, baking powder, baking soda, salt and all-purpose flour. A dusting of confectioners' sugar makes a sweet garnish. The blogger used parchment paper for cupcake liners and also added edible flowers and additional orange zest.
