These Old-Fashioned Cupcakes include all of the components of the classic Old Fashioned: whiskey, bitters, and orange. The cake here is an orange-scented cake that tastes just like that childhood favorite, the Creamsicle—that is, before you soak it in copious amounts of whiskey.

And when it comes time to garnish, it's really a matter of how you like your Old Fashioned; your can either go with a sprinkling of sugared orange zest or a Maraschino cherry.
