Orange Dreamcicles are one of those awesome treats that just scream summer. The combination of slightly tart orange and sweet creamy vanilla just can't be beat, and making them inside fresh orange rinds makes them extra special (and delicious).

Get baking folks! A 3-month PRO Membership will go to the first person to try these out and post photos below! (awesome photo, aliciaL_77 - thanks for giving them a try and sharing your gorgeous cupcakes!)

Step 1: You'll Need. . .

Orange Cake
  • 1 egg white, room temperature

  • 1 teaspoon orange juice (use some from your scooped oranges)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • 3 large oranges (pick ones that have nice smooth skin) (Note: I wrongly decided that my oranges were particularly large and only used two - this led to some pretty serious orange explosions. Err on the safe side and go with 3 oranges and don't over-fill them)

  • (optional) orange sugar or sprinkles for decoration
  • Mixing bowl

<p>I own 2 orange trees that give me the sweetest oranges ever! I really need to try your orange cakes. I would have never thought of this. How interesting. But then....I grew up in an apple orchard. Just got my orange trees with my house in 2008. Orange trials...here we come! Give me more! ;) </p>

I remember these from my childhood. If you keep the top and wrap them in tinfoil they can be &quot;baked&quot; in the fire. The rind keeps them from burning. SOO Yummy
