    Andi of Longmeadow Farm's Note:

    On Christmas Day so very long ago, I watched quietly from the living room window for Santa to disappear in his sleigh as the morning dawned clear and brisk. I knew he had come, and even though my parents always laughed off the idea, I *KNEW* he existed. I could peek and see there are a large, brand new spanking "Easy Bake Oven" and I almost passed out from the excitement I could hardly conceal. I ran in my room, and promptly jumped up and down on my bed until the springs creaked with enough noise to wake all the sleeping cats in the house. "He had come! and.....Santa had brought a perfectly sized oven for just me." To be truthful, I shouldn't of even peeked, but I did. The first wonderful treat I made with my oven was the tiniest little cake. My mother and I had worked together to get the ingredients right, and I learned how to put this delightful frosting together, which; to this day I still prepare with the fresh oranges that come at Christmastime. I don't have the "Easy Bake Oven" but I do have the memories.

      Had to remove the icing to another room otherwise I would have "taste-tested" my way through it before the cupcakes were ready. Perfect little recipe. I chopped up the orange zest and may have used more than what's called for (I'd really measure that next time). Lovely fresh orange flavour. Made with softened Earth Balance - worked like a charm. Thanks Andi!

      This is a delicious and tasty light frosting. I would not use the butter flavored Crisco again, though. It has a disticnt taste and I think regular shortening or butter would be better. Thanks for sharing Andi!

      Yum! I found a tub of Crisco All-Vegetable Shortening in David Jones (Australia) in US section and I was so excited. I see this product in a lot a Zaar recipe but I can't make them because I'm not sure what to use as a substitute. So I brought a tub and kept it in the pantry, finally I found a recipe I could use it. I doubled the recipe because I need to cover 30 Simple Chocolate Cupcakes for Little Miss (DD) 5th birthday celebration at kindergarten (pre-school) treats to share with her class mates. The frosting/icing is special, the taste is fantastic and it was so creamy. For the Aussies again confectioners' sugar is icing sugar. Combine with the chocolate it tasted like Allens Jaffa's. I was also tempted to add a little orange food colour because it was more yellow then orange but I didn't because the pale yellow looked very elegant. Thank you Andi of Longmeadow Farm
