I am wondering if anyone can tell me how to make buttercream frosting to taste like a creamsicle. My daughter is requesting this for her birthday on an orange and white checkerboard cake.

Use orange emulsion as your flavoring. I did it once and it tasted just like a creamsicle.

You can also do half vanilla and half orange extract. My husband does it that way and it also tastes exactly like an orange creamsicle.

I believe the key is to start with a cream cheese icing, then I added orange oil flavoring. The cream cheese gives it the "cream' taste.

I tasted a Dreamsicle cheese cake once. Even tho' I HATE cheesecake, I had to recreate this flavor. After a little playing around, I came up with Dreamsicle icing.

It was hit with my clients from day one! thumbs_up.gif My favorite story is the mom who tasted my dreamsicle icing, then went to her 2nd tasting at another bakery. She specifically requested "orange" icing and when she came back to order the cake from me, she told me their's was "not even close!" icon_biggrin.gif

I thought emulsions were for baking? I would use orange flavoring added to cream cheese icing.

I found an ice cream topping that is (Sunkist I think?) orange "soda", but tastes like orange cream. I made it with Pastry Pride for a of my favorites so far, but I'm sure it would work with buttercream too. I found it with the chocolate/caramel syrups at the grocery.

Thanks, madgeowens! I picked up some on clearance a week or so ago and now I can use it for both baking and icings.
