Lemon Buttercream Frosting Recipe

This lemon buttercream frosting has a more tangy flavor. Buttercream frostings are a good choice on many desserts.

Ingredients

1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
3 cups confectioners' sugar
2 teaspoons lemon zest, finely grated
4 Tablespoons lemon juice, fresh
3-5 Tablespoons cream or wholemilk
(Makes about 3 cups)

Directions

Place the butter in a mixing bowl and cream the butter using an electric mixer on medium. Beat about 2 minutes.

Beat in the sugar, lemon zest, and lemon juice and beat on medium speed until well combined.

Add the cream one tablespoon at a time.

Never add all at once as the frosting may be too thin.

Mix in each spoon of milk until you have the consistency you would like, then mix for 2-3 minutes.

*Optional, if you want the frosting to be more yellow put a drop or two of food coloring.

Either spread or pipe the frosting onto your cakes or cupcake.

The frosting sets when chilled.
