Orange Dreamsicle Buttercream Frosting Recipe

Sharing is caring!

This orange dreamsicle buttercream is the stuff you taste in dreams.

It’s an incredibly scrumptious, smooth and fluffy buttercream icing that tastes like the perfect orange dreamsicle.

Move away from the canned frosting.

That stuff is filled with junk.

Besides, it’s so easy to make incredible homemade buttercream in minutes at home.

Trust me, it tastes so much better than anything you buy in that plastic tub.

I love cake.

I especially love frosting.

Use this Orange Dreamsicle frosting on our Orange Creamsicle Cupcakes and never look back.

The cupcakes are light, moist, and flavorful.

This buttercream takes them over the top making it a bite of heaven.

Both the orange creamsicle cupcake and this frosting stand on their own.

After all, the cake should not hide behind the frosting.

Together these two are perfect companions. 

It also pairs well with chocolate.

Mmm…chocolate cupcakes topped with Orange Dreamsicle Buttercream.

Now, that’s something to sink your teeth into.
