Ingredients

Cake: 
Lavender Frosting:

Directions

For the cake: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F 15. Line a cupcake pan with 12 regular-size cupcake liners or 24 mini cupcake liners. 

For the cake: Mix the flour, granulated sugar, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl. Combine the tangerine juice, canola oil, vinegar, orange extract and vanilla extract in a 5-quart mixer with a paddle attachment on first speed. Add the dry ingredients. Add the poppy seeds. Once all the dry ingredients are incorporated, turn the mixer up to second speed and mix well. Turn the mixer off. 

Fill the cupcake liners half full with batter. Bake until baked through, about 20 minutes. Cool the cupcakes completely. 

For the frosting: Whip the powdered sugar, vegetable shortening, 1/4 cup water, lavender extract and salt in a bowl with an electric mixer. Add additional water in very small amounts to get the creamy consistency if it is too thick. Put the frosting in a pastry bag and cut off 1/2-inch off the top. 

To assemble: Frost each cupcake with the lavender frosting. Place a tangerine slice on top.
