Why Orange Dreamsicle Cupcakes?

This Orange Dreamsicle Cupcake recipe came up because so many people love the taste of dreamsicles so we figured we’d try making cupcakes to fit in with the Soda Pop Cupcakes series.

Soda pop cupcakes are a huge hit right now and why wouldn’t they be? They are adorable and EASY! Most require just two or three ingredients. These orange dreamsicle cupcakes are delicious and I can’t get over the wonderful light color of them.

Orange Dreamsicle Cupcake Recipe

Orange Dreamsicle Soda Pop Cupcakes


  • Cake Ingredients
  • 1 white cake mix
  • 12 oz of orange soda pop
  • 1 1/2 - 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • Icing
  • 1 1/3 cups shortening
  • 1/3 - 1/2 cup orange soda
  • 3 tablespoons Dream Whip
  • 2 lbs powdered sugar
  • 2-3 teaspoons vanilla (clear if possible)


  1. Mix cake ingredients together and bake in cupcake pan according to box directions.
  2. While your cupcakes are baking/cooling mix icing ingredients together. I love this icing because it's not to sweet. The longer you mix it the smoother it gets. One of the few recipes I break out the kitchen aid for as I like to mix it for 15 minutes. However a quick mix will suffice.
  3. Ice the tops of the cupcakes and top the cupcake off with half a gummy orange slice.
  4. Perfection 🙂
