Starting with the new Pillsbury seasonal flavor Orangesicle Cake Mix, I added my usual ingredients to make it taste more like homemade.

The frosting is also from the new Pillsbury seasonal flavors, Orangesicle and it’s mixed with a little whipped topping.

Any glass jar will work, I like the half pint size, they hold 1 cupcake perfectly. After the cupcakes are cooled, use a serrated knife and cut into thirds. Fit a decorator bag with a large round tip and fill with Orangesicle frosting. Layer the cupcake and frosting, finishing with the frosting and topping it off with a candy orange slice.
