Step 1
Combine sugar and corn starch in medium saucepan. Drain mandarin oranges, reserving liquid. Reserve mandarin oranges for later use. Add enough water to reserved liquid to measure 3/4 cup. Gradually stir into sugar mixture. Bring to boil on medium heat, stirring constantly; cook and stir 1 min. Add to dry jelly powder in medium bowl; stir 2 min. until completely dissolved. Refrigerate 1 hour or until thickened, stirring occasionally.
Step 2
Meanwhile, prepare cake batter and bake as directed on package for 24 cupcakes. Cool in pans 10 min. Remove to wire racks; cool completely.
Step 3
Use end of wooden spoon to poke hole in centre of each cupcake, being careful not to poke hole completely through to bottom of cupcake. Spoon jelly mixture into resealable plastic bag. Cut small piece off one bottom corner of bag; use to squeeze jelly mixture into holes in cupcakes.
Step 4
Beat pudding mix and milk in medium bowl with whisk 2 min. (Pudding will be thick.) Stir in Cool Whip and orange zest until blended.
Step 5
Frost tops of cupcakes with pudding mixture. Decorate with reserved mandarin oranges and mint leaves to resemble flowers as shown in photo.
