Lemon Icing

The second icing which Ava made for her Chocolate Cupcakes is Lemon Icing.

Lemon-Icing-10-400x600

The tinge of sourness in the Lemon Icing helps to cut back the sweetness of the icing.

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup butter; softened
  • 4 cups icing sugar
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • 4 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

Lemon-Icing-2-300x200Sift 1/2 of the icing sugar into the bowl with butter and lemon. Fold the icing sugar before starting to beat with an electric mixer.

  1. Hi, I’m going to try this and your cream cheese icing recipe for my son’s cupcake “birthday-cake.” Approximately how many cupcakes will this recipe cover?
