    I got this from my sister, who got it off the box of a Sprinkles Cupcake mix. She said it was to die for. Sprinkles is a famous bakery in CA, and was featured on Oprah.

      Cupcakes frosted with this stuff are FANTASTIC! My family has been treated a few times to fancy-schmancy cupcakes from a cupcake bakery around here that charges like four bucks for a cupcake so I decided to make my own! Boy am I glad I chose this recipe. I used a lemon cake mix and I "piped" this frosting a mile high, using a ziploc bag with the corner snipped off. I wanted a definate lemony taste so I used the zest and juice from 2 lemons and I reduced the sugar by 1/2 cup. It was perfect! I highly recommend using real butter...it makes all the difference, especially if you're piping a thick layer. It makes a lot, definately enough for a 2-layer cake, or enough for 2 dozen cupcakes even with a generous hand like mine. Try it - you won't be sorry!

      Makes wayyyy too much for the intensity of flavor. I like a lot of frosting on my cupcakes, but only if the frosting is delicately flavored and sweetened (like fresh whipped cream would be) this is very sweet and very lemony, and I could only tolerate a thin layer of the frosting on my cupcakes. I halved the recipe, and used all the frosting on 12 cupcakes... when I ate one, I unfortunately had to go back and take off most of the frosting and throw it away. I would use 1/4 of this recipe next time, for 12.

      This frosting was a hit with my coworkers. I used it to frost some mexican vanilla cupcakes and it was just the right amount of tartness. Be sure to add the zest of the lemon to the recipe. It makes a huge difference in the flavor. Use a stand mixer, if at all possible, to really whip the air in to make it light and fluffy. Yum!
