Made this yesterday in an emergency as my bunt cake (orange pound) stuck and looked awful. Had half the cream cheese, so I doubled the butter and omitted the food coloring. It was awesome!! Used the zest, too!
I made this to use as a SPREAD for Sunflower Seed and Orange Bread ~ I used 8 ounces cream cheese, a dash of salt, 1 tablespoon butter, 1 tablespoon orange zest, 1 teaspoon orange extract, and only 1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar; I did not add any food coloring!

Great frosting! I made it as written and used it to frost a banana cake. Next time I'll try it with spice cake or carrot cake. Thanks for sharing. Made for Spring PAC 2012.
