Well, Spring has sprung in Florida! My open-toe shoe loving feet are ecstatic but my naturally curly hair? Not so much. I guess I can’t win them all. But these frosty little orange sherbet cupcakes were definitely a win as our temperatures nudged toward 80* and I lamented the frizzy state that will be my hair for the next 6+ months. Cupcakes make everything better!
Orange Sherbet Cupcakes
Well, these orange sherbet cupcakes are made the same way! Soft fruity layers of orange sherbet cake, frosty orange sherbet, whipped cream, sprinkles and then topped with a fluffy orange marshmallow!
Orange Sherbet Cupcakes
- One box of Betty Crocker Orange Sherbet Cupcake Mix + ingredients on box see notes
- Orange sherbet softened (but not melted)
- Whipped Cream
- Orange/peach Sprinkles
- Orange Marshmallows from a bag of fruity Kraft Mallow Bites
Prepare cupcake mix according to package directions.
In foil cupcake papers, spoon about 1 1/2 tablespoons of prepared batter.
Bake for about 8 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Allow cupcakes to cool completely.
Once cupcakes are cooled, spoon softened orange sherbet over cupcake and smooth using an offset spatula or the back of a spoon.
Place cupcakes in the freezer until ready to serve.
Once you are ready to serve, remove the cupcakes from the freezer and peel away the foil cupcake papers.
Place unwrapped cupcakes on serving dish, top with whipped cream, sprinkles and add a marshmallow.
If you cannot find the Orange Sherbet cupcake mix, you can use any orange cake mix. Yield may vary depending on the amount of batter in each cup.
Orange sherbet is one of my favorite cool treats! When I little, I always picked out the orange push ups at the grocery store in the Summer. Any baby or bridal shower punch with orange sherbet (or any sherbet for that matter!) gets me every time! Must.drink.the.punch. So, I was excited that once we tasted tested these babies, they totally reminded me of that cool, creamy orange flavor!
And you know me … if it has frosting or a topping of any kind, it must have sprinkles. Thank goodness I had a jar of pretty peachy sprinkles in my stash. I am fully in the #sprinkleallthethings camp. And since these were orange flavored cupcakes, the sweet little orange marshmallows were completely necessary. Naturally.
I am already brainstorming fun ice cream cupcake combinations … wouldn’t lemon be awesome for Spring? And a super chocolate-y version? Oooo, and a batch of triple vanilla! Any other flavor combos that you would like to see?
