Orange Cream Cheese Frosting

Categories: Frosting & Fillings

Submitted by: Leslie Glover Pendleton

Orange Cream Cheese Frosting is perfect for cupcakes or a spice cake. Since it calls for butter and cream cheese, it is more mild than regular cream cheese frosting yet more rich than butter cream.


  • 1 stick butter softened
  • 8 oz. cream cheese softened
  • 1 tsp. orange zest freshly grated
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 4 c. confectioner's sugar


With the whisk attachment of an electric mixer, beat the butter until smooth. Add the cream cheese, zest and vanilla and beat until smooth. Gradually beat in the sugar, beating and scraping the bowl until smooth.
