Orange Creamsicle® Frosting

I was in a pinch when I couldn’t find orange extract for a orange Creamsicle® frosting; this recipe could be changed up to any flavor by using different flavors of Kool-Aid®.

Original recipe makes 24 servings


1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 package unsweetened orange-flavored soft drink mix (such as Kool-Aid®)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
6 cups confectioners’ sugar, or as needed
