Rated 5 out of 5 by Flava Sweet from I changed the recipe and used pure shortening instead of the mix and I did not have orange oil so I used fresh squeezed orange juice to replace the oil and the milk, even added extra until I got just the right amount of orange flavour. It was delicious, especially on top of the devil's food cupcakes. Chocolate and orange is just yummy! I used an orange zester (fine grater) rather than peel the orange and chop it up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sugar204 from This icing is light and fresh. Instead of orange oil, I added more orange zest replaced the milk with orange juice. The extra zest and orange juice turned the icing a light orange colour that didn't require the addition of food colouring. I paired this icing with raspberry cupcakes and the subtle flavour of the cupcakes followed by the orange was perfect!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Baseball369 from I would use all butter because it gets a strange texture & I also used the juice from the orange. The orange juice & zest give it a great light orange color.
