Orange Creamsicle Cupcakes

Hello everyone! Today we made something super special; Orange Creamsicle Cupcakes! I’m super excited about this recipe because they’re so tasty and just so pretty. Let’s get baking!


Cupcake Mix

  • 3 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 3/4 cups sugar
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 6-10 tbsp orange jello mix
  • 1 tbsp orange zest
  • 3 eggs
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 1/3 cup orange juice


  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 butter, softened
  • 2-5 tsp orange jello mix
  • 4-5 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


1. Start by pre-heating your oven to 350 F. Then line 2 cupcake pans with papers.

2. Then in a stand mixer or hand mixer, mix together your flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder on low until mixed.


3. Add your orange jello mix, 3 eggs, oil, orange zest, orange juice, and water and beat on medium for 2 minutes. (We used fresh orange juice.) If the batter is not thick enough, you may need to add a few more tbsp flour.

4. Then scoop batter into each of the cups, until about 2/3 full. Bake for 15-20 minutes.


5. After baking let cool and start making your frosting.


6. Start by creaming together you cream cheese  and butter in a mixer. Once mixed, add your vanilla extract. Then add your orange jello mix.     Then gradually add your powdered sugar and continue beating on medium-high until smooth and thick.

7. Then start assembling the cupcakes. We didn’t have the right sized tip for our piping bag, so we just cut a larger hole in the bottom of our piping bag to get the shape we wanted. For the small white dollops we used Wilton tip 32. We also garnished them with a small orange slice.

Ta-da! The orange flavor is so yummy! ☺️🍊
