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.
