Cupcake Creamsicle’s

Cupcake Ingredients:
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
7 Tablespoons sugar
2 large eggs
3/4 cup self-rising flour
2 teaspoon orange flavoring
, orange oil, or orange liquor
(May use 1/2 teaspoon almond extract instead of the suggested 1 tsp.vanilla extract.)
2-3 Tablespoons milk

Directions :
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. (I bake them at 375* F) Line a 12 cup muffin tin with baking paper cups. Put all the ingredients except for the milk into a food processor and blend until smooth.
Pulse while adding the milk down the funnel to make for a soft consistency.It doesn't seem like enough batter, but it will all work out, scrape every bit from the bowl and try to fill each cup equally. Bake for 15-20 or until they are golden on top. (These are perfectly baked in 14 to 15 minutes @ 375* in my oven) It's best to start checking them at 12 minutes.

Orange Cream Cheese Icing
1 stick (4 oz) unsalted butter softened
8 oz softened Cream cheese
1 cup powdered sugar
2 tsp orange flavoring, orange oil, or orange liquor

Combine the room temperature butter and cream cheese together in a mixer with a paddle attachment. Slowly add the sugar 1/4 cup at a time and add the orange flavoring at the end. For the easiest results put the icing in piping bag with the tip of your choice and pipe onto cupcakes.
