Orange Dream Cupcakes


This is a yummy recipe.  It’s a cupcake version of the Orange Dreamsicle. I used some origami paper as the cupcake liner.  It really gives them a pretty look!


  • 1 (18 1/4 ounce) box orange cake mix

  • 1 (3 ounce) box orange Jell-O

  • 1 cup boiling water

  • 1 (3 1/2 ounce) box instant vanilla pudding

  • 1 cup cold milk

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 teaspoon orange extract

  • 1 (8 ounce) container Cool Whip

  • 4 ounces (half a block) of cream cheese 


Prepare cake mix according to directions for cupcakes (if you can’t find orange cake mix add some orange extract to the mix. )

 After the cupcakes are finished, use a fork to poke holes into each

Prepare your orange jello with boiling water and use a spoon to pour over each cupcake

Allow to cool

When you are ready to ice …

In a bowl prepare the pudding with milk, vanilla and orange extracts

once thickened blend with softened cream cheese

Pipe icing on each cupcake

I like to set these in the refrigerator allowing the icing to set and serve cold
