Recipe by C. Taylor
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!
