The New Year brings football....and the Orange Bowl is tomorrow.  So why not feature orange cream cheese icing.  Make some cupcakes and enjoy the game!

Orange Cream Cheese Icing

3 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
3 tablespoons orange juice
1 tablespoon orange zest
4-5 cups confectioners' sugar
In a large bowl, beat butter, cream cheese, juice and zest with electric mixer until light and fluffy.  Add confectioners’ sugar one cup at a time, beating until light and fluffy. If icing is too thin add additional confectioners’ sugar 1 tablespoon at a time.
