Gluten-free Vegan Chocolate Orange Cupcakes

A cupcake is a small cake designed to serve one person, frequently baked in a small, thin paper or aluminum cup. As with larger cakes, frosting, icing (chocolate orange in this vegan recipe) and other cake decorations, such as sprinkles, are common on cupcakes. This gluten-free cupcake recipe is designed for gluten-intolerant people.
