This was delicious! It tasted like an orange creamsicle! However, it was hard to get firm enough to spread. If I didn't add a lot more powdered sugar, the frosting would have ran off the sides of the cupcakes! I stuck it in the refrigerator to get a better consistency. Even though it tasted good, it was really sweet!
