  • Notes:

    • This orange frosting is a soft consistency, making it perfect for spreading on cakes or cupcakes.
    • Recipe can easily be doubled to frost in between cake layers and cover the outside in a zesty cream cheese frosting.
    • To Color: Make the frosting pop with orange gel food coloring added at the very end. A little goes a long way so start small and add more as desired.
