Orange Creamsicle Cupcakes


 

 

Remember those orange popsicles with white ice cream inside? These orange creamsicle  cupcakes taste just like those! Orange Crush Soda and Orange Jello give the cupcakes a wonderful orange flavor AND color!

 

They’re topped with a homemade orange butter cream. The orange soda serves as the milk component. If your icing is too thick add more soda. If too thin, add more powdered sugar.
