I haven't used it, but Capella Flavorings makes an Orange Creamsicle extract (online). If you're in a pinch (like I was), you can try adding (don't laugh) the duncan hines frosting creations powder in Orange Creme. I have successfully added it to my yellow cake recipe and it was delicious paired with vanilla buttercream! icon_wink.gif

Thanks Tiz for the suggestions. Im trying to recreate our wedding cake to surprise my husband for our annaversery. It was a dreamsicle cake. I always thought of it as a white sourcream cake with the dreamsicle flavor and it had little pieces of manderan oranges in it too. But I haven't been able to find a recipe.

Loriann also makes an orange which I used for making 50/50 orange cupcakes, they were a hit !

I buy a flavoring from King Arthur Flour called Fiori di Sicilia and it's a creamsicle flavor. It's yummy in just about everything.

Now that is some good stuff! thumbs_up.gif To me, the flavor is more delicate than a creamsicle, but it is so good!

The recipe you describe, with the bits of mandarin orange, sounds like this one (without the nuts): http://www.bettycrocker.com/recipes/luscious-mandarin-orange-cake/02e67811-b56b-4047-8804-9cf3992dd249

For my dreamsicle cupcakes, i use a orange cake mix. (yes Im a boxed mixer) the duncan Hines Orange Supreme is divine. Instead of the veg oil it calls for i use Pamppered Chef orange infused canola oil, and grated orange if you like. The frosting i use a pure buttercream (all butter no shortening) and divide the buttercream in 1/2 after made so i can keep one side vanilla (add vanilla extract after frosting is divided), and i use orange food coloring and orange extract in the other 1/2 so i can swirl two different colors.. Everyone LOVEs THEM.
If you want to use a filling, which makes these even better try and look up the "twinkie" filling receipe.
