Orange Cream Frosting

I used an orange filling between the two layers ... which left me with a generous amount of orange cream frosting to work with. Make the orange filling ahead of time, beacuse it needs to be chilled first.

Orange Icing

3 cups sifted confectioners' sugar
1/3 cup soft shortening or butter for richer flavor
about 3 tablespoons orange juice
grated rind for added flavor

Blend together the sugar and shortening. Add in the orange juice and rind until smooth.

Orange Filling

1 cup sugar
4 tablespoons corn starch
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup orange juice
2 tablespoons orange rind
1 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons butter

Mix ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil for 1 minute. Chill well before using.

For richer flavor substitute 4 egg yolks for the cornstarch and add after the mixture has boiled for a minute.
