Orange Creamsicle Frosting
If you love orange creamsicle pops, then you'll LOVE this frosting!! It has the same delicious orange flavor of the popsicles I had when I was a kid! This recipe is using the American style frosting base, so it is very sweet. This recipe also uses heavy cream as the liquid ingredient, so it is a thick and creamy frosting. I hope you enjoy!!
For a lighter less sweet version of the orange creamsicle recipe, check back soon for the whipped buttercream version! :)
To begin this recipe, add 1/2 stick (2 ounces) of salted butter to the mixing bowl of a stand mixer (or another bowl suitable for a hand mixer, if using).
Next, add 1/2 stick (2 ounces) of unsalted butter to the bowl.
Next, add 1/2 cup of high ratio shortening to the bowl.
Note: if you prefer not to use shortening, just add 1/2 cup of unsalted butter instead.
Note #2: Do not use Crisco. It may leave a filmy aftertaste.
Next, add 1 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla extract.
Using the paddle attachment (if using a stand mixer), blend ingredients together on low speed. Next, add 1/2 teaspoon of LorAnn Oils natural Orange Oil to the bowl. For a less intense creamsicle flavor, feel free to just use 1/4 teaspoon.
Note: LorAnn Oils is a powerful candy flavoring found in the candy making section of most candy and cake decorating supply stores. I usually purchase my flavorings from Michaels Craft store or my local cake decorating supply store.
Color your frosting a creamsicle orange color by using Wilton's gel color in Orange.
Mix all ingredients on high speed for 3 to 4 minutes, until frosting increases in volume and appears fluffy.
And that's how you make this yummy creamsicle frosting!! I hope you have enjoyed this tutorial! God bless!!
