Orangey Frosting

Shelia Senghas


I posted this recipe with my Orangey Cake recipe from my mom, however, I think it deserves its on recipe posting. This is packed with orange flavor and is the perfect companion for the Orangey Cake. I have also used it thinned to glaze other cakes and desserts. I will be including this in my cookbook so I have included a photo of my mom as the main photo.
