Veronica's Lemon Buttercream Frosting

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Trixyinaz

This frosting is to die for if you love lemon! Perfect as the frosting on a white or lemon cake. I think I found this in Betty Croker's cookbook, but can't remember. VERY VERY LEMONY!

Oh wow! This was very good! My DH wouldn't stop sticking his finger in the bowl! We have some left from the small cake so he ended up layering some in between cookies to munch on. No more sugar for him!
