Orange Marmalade Frosting

Yummy, yummy, yummy. Of course, you have to love oranges to love this frosting--but I do! And for that chocolate-orange mix, this frosting can't be beat!

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2-3 tbsp orange juice
  • 2 tbsp orange marmalade
Place butter in a large mixing bowl. Beat with an electric or stand mixer on low speed until fluffy--about 30 seconds. Add powdered sugar and 2 tbsp orange juice. Blend on low speed until sugar is incorporated. Stir in the orange marmalade. Beat on medium speed until light and fluffy--about 2 minutes. Blend in up to 1 tbsp of remaining orange juice if the frosting seems stiff. Frost your cupcakes!
