Filling:
Mix the butter and cream cheese and add orange flavor, vanilla, salt, and orange zest. Beat in confectioners sugar until smooth and creamy.

When the cupcakes have cooled with a sharp knife cut a divit in the center of the cupcake out and with a pastry tube fill the hollow with the filling. The bigger the divit the more orange flavor. Refrigerate.
