2 cups butter (room temperature)
5 cups powdered sugar
1 T vanilla
6 T TGIFridays Orange Dream drink mixer
(I also added 11 drops yellow and 4 drops of red food coloring to give it a bright zing of color)
Beat butter on high-speed w/electric mixer for 5 minutes. Slowly (while on low-speed) add powdered sugar until incorporated. Add vanilla, drink mix (and food coloring) and continue whipping on high-speed until light and fluffy.
Transfer to a piping bag with a round tip and frost cupcakes.
Sprinkle with orange sugar…
We recommend using this frosting on Orange Dreamsicle Cupcakes

While she realizes there are the tried and true endorphin-inducers like exercise, being thankful and eating healthy, she prefers to live in the fast lane: real butter, a new recipe with a gazillion calories and laughing until she sobs…and of course blogging.
