1 cup butter, softened to room temperature
3 cups powdered sugar
1 tablespoon orange crush
2 tablespoons orange jello dry gelatin mix
few drops of orange extract (optional for more flavor)

Beat butter until light and fluffy. Add in jello mix and mix together well. Then add in powdered sugar, orange crush, orange extract and orange food coloring. Beat until well creamy and smooth. If it's too dry add more orange crush. If it's too runny add a little more powdered sugar.
