I also couldn't find an orange cake mix and used a golden mix instead and added a tsp of orange extract to the freshly squeezed O-J. The cake turned out great, orange flavour and moist. Trouble started when I made the marshmallow part of the icing, good thing I tried it before putting it on...all I could taste was the shortening, horrible! Is it possible that you're suppose to use butter OR vegetable shortening? Instead of following the buttercream recipe as stated above, I left out the veg shortening and used only the butter, it turned out great. Disappointed that I don't have the marshmallow but overall the cupcakes still tasted great.
