My favourite cream cheese frosting. Rich and creamy and slightly tart from the addition of fresh lemon juice.

Made this to go with a chocolate zucchini cake and it was a very nice addition. Loved the lemony taste and the fact it wasn't too sweet. My only beef is it was not quite thick enough, but it's easily rectified by either decreasing or omitting the milk, I think. Lovely. Thanks for posting.
