Cheery Orange Icing Recipe

I don't know about you, but I love to bake. When I'm sad, I bake. When I'm happy, I bake. When I'm broke and hungry, I bake because cake ingredients are incredibly cheap and honestly, what could you possibly want more when you're sad, happy or hungry than cake?

Although I bake often, I'm not very creative when it comes to recipes. I usually just stick to the tried and tested, or use a cake mix for a quick and guaranteed-to-be-good result. I do like to get a little creative with decorations, however and I especially love trying different flavours of icing.

This icing recipe is one of my all time favourites. It's sweet and tangy at the same time, comes out the perfect, cheery shade of yellow, reminds me of summer and makes a delicious pair with a fluffy butter cake. It's also super easy! Want to know how to make it? Of course you do!

Icing sugar (1 cup usually does about 12 cupcakes)
Finely grated rind of one orange
Juice of one orange

The How To:
Combine icing sugar and orange rind in a large bowl. Add orange juice bit by bit, stirring as you go to get rid of lumps, until the mixture is smooth and spreadable. If the mixture gets too runny, you can always add in a little extra icing sugar and give it another good stir.

See? Easy, peasy! Now you're ready to bake your own delicious, fluffy cup cakes. I promise you the tangy-sweet citrus taste will transport you to summer with every bite!
