      Delicious & simple frosting recipe. I was out of yellow food coloring, but I'd recommend it--it was a pretty plain off-white color. Yellow would have been so much prettier. This made plenty to generously cover a 12-cup bundt cake. It was a little on the stiff side, so have a little extra lemon juice or milk on hand in case you need it. Thanks for sharing, Molly!

      Wonderful frosting - tastes like you are eating lemonade! At first this didn't seem to have the intense lemony flavor I was hoping for and it seemed too grainy. However, when I served the cake the next day it was smoother and had a nice lemon flavor. I also grated more lemon rind and sprinkled the top of the cake with it for decoration and flavor which was nice. I used it to frost a double layer 9 inch cake and there wasn't quite enough. The frosting is so sweet though I think next time I'll use a lemon filling in the middle and this frosting on the top and sides.

      This recipe is awesome! I wanted more flavor to my frosting so I added a tablespoon of limoncello liqueur, and it turned out perfect. I added the frosting to lemon cupcakes that had a raspberry filling and my coworkers (for whom I had made these for) couldn't get enough.
