Absolutely perfect and exactly how I remember it from my childhood. I used orange juice instead of liqueur and it turned out just fine. It *will* be lumpy at first - just hang in there! Add the liqueur (or juice) to the butter and sugar and keep beating it; it will smooth out and then you can add the orange zest.

It was really crumbly after adding the GM - not at all spreadable. I had to add approx 4T of milk to get it to spreading consistency. The final product was tasty, but I have other icing recipes I prefer.

I used orange to replace the liqueur. The flavour of the frosting is very good. A few of the reviewers said the frosting was dry. But I have made this frosting many times already, as a filling for the Williamsburg Orange Cake (also from this website) and as a frosting for cupcakes (same cake recipe). As a filling it is great. Used as a frosting for a cake or cupcakes, I find it a bit soft. Perhaps it has to do with my hot and humid tropical climate - I live in Malaysia. But I will continue to use it because it smells and tastes great, and it's refreshingly different from the usual buttercream frosting. I just put the cake with the frosting in the fridge to set overnight before taking it anywhere.
