Beat in eggs 1 at a time, then next 3 ingredients (batter may look curdled). Beat in flour mixture in 3 additions alternately with buttermilk in 2 additions. Spoon scant 1/3 cup batter into each liner.
Bake cupcakes until tester inserted into center comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool 10 minutes. Remove from pan; cool.

u can always use box mix like vanillia and then add the peel + food coloring
u can also use cream cheese frosting in the container if u want 2 do it quick or if u dont have a mixer.
