READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by PrincessPage

This is so very lemony, just sweet enough.

Top Review by Muffin Goddess

Lovely, lovely frosting! So lemony, and it whipped up beautifully for a buttercream. I really liked the look of the white frosting with the little yellow flecks of lemon zest, too. I didn't have any half and half, so I just used heavy cream instead. I only needed to add about half of the cream, probably because it was so warm in my kitchen. I was planning on making some lemon cupcakes to use this on, but I need to wait until it isn't quite so hot in the house before I turn the oven on. I'll post a photo once I get the cupcakes made and frosted. Thanks for posting! Made for PAC Spring 2012
