Orange Cup Cake


1 duncan hines yellow cake mix
3 eggs
1 orange +/= (1 1/3 water/milk)
1/3 oil


1 8oz light cream cheese
1 cup powdered sugar
1small heavy whipping cream
orange food color


1. Follow cake instruction on the box, squeeze orange on glass measuring cup and add milk to come up to 1 1/3 cup fluid. Empty cake mix to the mixer, add all ingredients, and mix well at least 2 minutes. Bake according to the instruction. Let it cool completely before icing application.

2. Empty cream cheese and add sugar to the mixer. Mix well until well incorporated and silky moist. Add in heavy cream and whisk for at least 5 minutes. Mixture should stick together not runny when it's ready. Drop a little food color to the mixture and beat well. Into a piping bag with flower tip and form big flower starting from the edges to the middle.

Note: I use gel food color, best for pastel colors. 


  1. YUM! these looks lovely & delicious! Beautiful cupcakes, really love the color of the icing! :)

    1. it's pretty good..I always scrape icing out every time i eat cake but this icing is so delicious and not greasy compared to the traditional icing used in cakes.
