    Over the weekend I did a little experimenting in the kitchen. I have a crush on orange soda (pun totally intended-ha)  so I decided to make orange creamsicle cupcakes. Boy did these surpass my expectations. Whenever I make up a recipe I have NO idea how it will turn out, but these orange cupcakes turned out absolutely delicious! Especially the frosting. Wow! I may have licked it straight from the bowl. Shh… don’t tell! I had to take them to my neighbors asap.

    The jello pudding makes these cupcakes super soft and the orange soda gives them a sweet kick. These would be super fun for a summer or Halloween party!

    My little boy sure loved helping me make these cupcakes! He is the best taste tester. ;)

    He even helped me frost the cupcakes… right after he gave himself a tattoo. He’s quite the artist, don’t you think? ;)

    These really are to die for! I love all things orange and these definitely made it to the top of the list! If you want to make the pinwheels find the tutorial here.
