Orange Creamsicle Cupcakes
I’ve been so good about not making sweets… I even gave up candy for lent and haven’t cheated once! But today is my co-worker Brian’s birthday and I had to make an exception. They told me Brian really likes orange flavored things. Now, I have to give credit where credit is due… My adorable boyfriend suggested the creamsicle flavor. Good idea babe.
These were really easy, and are surprisingly light.
After you prepare the cupcakes, whip the heavy cream until it becomes light and fluffy, slowly adding the powdered sugar while you mix until you get your desired sweetness. By using whipped cream instead of frosting you get the flavors of a creamsicle rather than orange cake. Slice orange quarters for garnish. (Keep them refrigerated before you serve them, the cream is delicate and will melt easily)
I love how fresh and bright they are! Now if only the sun would come out…
