Healthy Lemon Cupcake Frosting

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by EliteTwig

Taken from Gary & Janella's Good Chef Bad Chef tv show, this was shown in 2006 but the show is on re-runs, on UKTV Food. A healthier take on a cream cheese frosting.

This is very good but is much more like a glaze than a frosting as mentioned in the previous review. Very easy to make. I used this to go with recipe #235204 and it was perfect. Thanks for sharing.
