Recipe by Hybrid Cookin'
Simple, buttercream frosting made with orange juice for a tangy twist! Goes wonderfully on lemon cake, or over vanilla or pound cake. Even unusually good on chocolate cake! Thicker than a glaze, but not as stiff as store bought frostings. You can expect it to spread a little when you apply it, but don't worry, in a few moments it will be set in place. Glossy, elegant, and delicious!

Good frosting! I used this on Recipe #247635 and both were excellent together. I used alittle orange zest and a drop of orange extract to give more of a orange taste. It did harden really well after cooling. Perfect on this cake. My friends loved it :) Thanks so much for sharing the recipe!
