The flavor and texture of this frosting is great. However, with w cups of powdered sugar is was like soup. I added an entire box (1 lb.) to the cheese butter mixture, and it still will not hold its shape. So instead of decorating the cake I just kinda drizzled the frosting over the cake. Maybe I'll put a little frosting in condiment cups and serve it along for dipping, hate to just pitch it. Next time ( cause I like the flavor) I'll reduce the lemon juice to 1 tbsp. and see what happens.
