I found this recipe on the Land O' Lakes site when I was looking for a topping for a lemon cake. I added some lemon zest, and it was wonderful! The site suggests that for a chocolate buttercream, you use 2 to 3 squares melted and cooled unsweetened baking chocolate; for lemon or orange flavoring, add 1 tablespoon freshly grated lemon or orange peel (I imagine adding juice would sour the half & half); for coconut frosting, 1 1/2 teaspoons coconut extract or flavoring.
