Okay, so John and I do eat other things besides dessert. Really, we do! I just seem to blog about the dessert recipes a lot more often.I found the link to the recipe for these on OnePrettyThing, a blog that compiles bunches of crafting/decorating ideas from all sorts of other blogs each day. It's a fun place to go every now and then, and I've found some great ideas there!
1 Box Chocolate Cake Mix
Replace Water with Orange Juice
1/2 Orange Zested
Follow box directions with the added and replaced ingredients. For parchment cupcake papers (for the mini cupcakes that she showed on her blog - I made regular sized cupcakes with regular papers) cut 3 1/4” squares and squish down into cupcake pan.
4 Cups Powdered Sugar
8 Tablespoons Butter, Softened
3 Tablespoons Orange Juice (add more juice if needed)
1 Orange Zested
Mix all the ingredients until smooth. Use a round piping tip to pipe the icing (I used a plastic sandwich baggy with a corner cut off). Zest an additional orange for garnish and sprinkle a little sugar on top.
If you have a chance to take a look at her blog, I recommend it! She's a graphic designer at Hume Lake and her work is sweet and refreshing
