I think if I would have made the frosting as is it would have been 4 stars but I zested an orange and added it into the mix and it was definately a five star recipe with that addition. Also I think I ended up adding more than 2 T of orange juice. I squeezed in what I thought was 2 T and it seemed a bit stiff and not quite creamy enough so I juiced the entire orange into the bowl. This is NOT a glaze as one reviewer said... I can't even imagine what that person did wrong to make it runny enough to pass as a glaze. Read More

My son asked for white cake with orange cream frosting for his birthday. I found this and after reading the reviews I decided to use it but added 1 tsp. orange zest for a little more flavor. It's perfect with a nice creamy flavor. The only thing I'll do next time (and there will be next times) is make an additional half recipe of it. I had to skimp to frost my 9" round cake. Read More

This frosting is delicious and very creamy. I added an extra tablespoon of orange juice for a slightly stronger flavor. It generously frosted 18 chocolate cupcakes with some left over. For a decorative touch I drizzled melted chocolate on top. Read More

I used 1 tablespoon fresh squeezed o.j. and 1 tablespoon o.j. concentrate. I really like the addition of the corn syrup. Yummy! It was the perfect icing for my orange chiffon cake. Read More

this frosting is fantastic 5 out of 5 for if you are wanting a smooth creamy frosting regardless of how much sugar was included in order to achieve the frosting supreme. Enormous sugar content in this frosting but delicious all the same. Read More

this is a fantastic icing even though I ended up having to add a little bit more powdered sugar to make it thicker. Read More
