Sesame Cupcakes

I'm making cupcakes for my friend's birthday this weekend. She's still getting a regular birthday cake, so I am free to experiment with the recipe. I have some sweet black sesame paste in the fridge, and am thinking of making sesame cupcakes. I'm not decided on the frosting, though, and would welcome input. I'm leaning toward orange, but am also considering cream cheese frosting or honey flavored frosting. Any ideas?
Also: I thought about green tea, but I don't want to go get matcha powder, so that's a not.
