Made these yesterday and they were a HUGE hit. Everyone loved them and I had tons of compliments - definitely a keeper!
Changes: I added 2 tsps of baking powder as well as the baking soda, and they rose just fine. For the icing, I left the orange extract out, and I only used 3 cups of icing sugar. It was perhaps slightly less thick than it should have been as a result, but it tasted amazing without being oversweet and was still plenty thick.
Criticisms & Tips: I ignored the warnings about there being way too much icing because I suspected people might be going light on it, and I do like lots of icing on my muffins - nope, it was at least double what I needed, and I was heavy-handed with mine. I will be making 1/2 batches of icing in the future - it will still be more than enough.
Also, while the white chocolate was definitely a nice touch, be careful to stir it lots and give it as little time as possible. Use a double boiler if you have one - I burned mine (on minimum heat) twice before I got it right.
