Quick and easy orange frosting recipe (orange buttercream icing), made with simple ingredients and perfect for Summer desserts. It’s fluffy, creamy, tastes great on cakes, cupcakes, cookies. Variations like orange cream cheese frosting also included.

I also want to make it very clear that this is NOT an orange whipped cream frosting because it does not use any whipped heavy cream. This is also NOT an orange icing glaze because the consistency for that is thinner and it’s typically used as a drizzle on top of cakes, cookies and rolls.

The cream cheese version has cream cheese as an ingredients and the buttercream version is made with butter and shortening or just butter with NO cream cheese.

Start off by creaming together butter and shortening. Then, mix in orange zest and extract. Start mixing powdered sugar, alternating with orange juice until frosting is fluffy. Mix in orange gel coloring, if you like. Enjoy!


  • ⅓ cup Butter Unsalted
  • ½ cup Shortening
  • 2 tbsp Orange zest
