Orange Hokkaido Chiffon Cupcakes : Bake-Along #84

The ever popular Hokkaido Chiffon Cupcakes is back in Bake-Along #84. Zoe has selected this theme as our bake-along this week, together with Lena, myself and everyone is welcome to bake-along with us. These cupcakes was really popular among bloggers about two years ago. Most of you have probably baked them at least once! Well, as usual, I'm the last one to hop onto the wagon!

These are chiffon cakes baked in mini forms and are filled with either custard or whipping cream and decorated with fresh fruits.

The ones I made are flavoured with fresh orange juice and zest, filled with whipped cream and decorate with slices of orange.

These Orange Hokkaido Chiffon Cupcakes are so delicious. The cake is so spongy, moist, soft, fluffy and really yummy with the whipped cream. If you have not tried making Hokkaido Chiffon Cupcakes before, now is the time to try it!
