Remember having Dreamsicle ice cream pops as a kid? The ice cream layer with the orange popsicle surrounding it made such a creamy treat! Well, this is THAT in cupcake form! The cupcake is orange flavored - real orange juice and zest mixed in the batter - and filled with delicious vanilla bean buttercream. Can you see the wonderful specs of fresh vanilla bean in the photo? Yum! The frosting is a mix of orange (ala Tang :) buttercream and the vanilla bean buttercream that fills this tasty treat. It really tastes like a Dreamsicle popsicle (just not as cold and such a more "adult" option :) Kudos to Carrie again for a great recipe to play with! I topped these beauties with some homemade edible candy magnolia flowers.
Have a wonderful day, sweet readers!
