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.
Yuummyy! Not too tart and not too sweet. Just delicious! Paired it with my coconut cream cake.
Used this to frost Extreme Lemon Bundt Cake Extreme Lemon Bundt Cake for my husband's birthday. Delicious !
Great Frosting. I'm even gonna try it sometime with key lime, or orange juices and peel just to see how they taste. I love it.
Ehhh... I wasn't a big fan. The rest of my family liked it, but I found that the amount of lemon rind in it was way to high. Maybe decrease the lemon rind by 1/4 tsp. and the lemon juice by 1 tbsp.? Anyways, I wasn't very happy with the way it turned out. Maybe it was just me, though...
Delightful frosting - very lemony and light. I made a birthday cake for a friend - everyone raved about this frosting. I made is as written with a bit more lemon zest - it looked lovely.
WONDERFUL frosting! I used it to frost a lemon bundt cake. I did, however, add a little more milk to get the right consistency. I also added two tiny drops of yellow food coloring to give it a light lemony look. This frosting will definitely go in my recipe repertoire. I took it to a New Years Eve party and everyone loved it!
Delicious! Lemony with just the right combination of tart and sweet.Cool Monday's picture is what convinced me to try this recipe, though I didn't add any food coloring so my frosting was barely off-white. I also used this with the lemon cake, but it would be fantastic with any cake...like white cake with raspberry filling..Yum! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
