¾ c. unsalted butter, room temperature
3 c. powdered sugar
5 tsp. fresh orange zest
1 ½ tsp. vanilla extract
½ c. chilled sour cream
1 ½ tsp. orange extract
Orange Food Coloring (optional)

In large bowl, beat cream cheese and butter with electric mixer until well blended. Beat in sugar, orange zest and vanilla. Beat in sour cream and food coloring, if desired. Can be used as a glaze, or cover and refrigerate approximately 30 minutes or until frosting is firm enough to spread. Frost by spreading over sides and top of cake.
