Lemon Buttercream Frosting

Recipe: Lemon Buttercream Frosting


    For Orange Buttercream Frosting, just switch the flavorings to orange.


    1 cup butter softened to room temperature
    1 bag of confectioners? sugar (2 lbs)
    1 egg
    1/4 tsp of salt
    2 tsp of lemon extract
    2 tsp of grated lemon rind
    4 Tbl of cream, half-and-half, or milk


    Put all items in your mixer bowl. Beat on slow speed until you have all ingredients mixed in; otherwise the powdered sugar will go flying. Once all items are incorporated, mix on medium-high for 2 minutes until fluffy.

    This makes enough frosting to frost any of the Zola Miracle cakes and leaves enough extra to decorate the cake and/or fill the hole left in the middle of a tube cake pan. Alternatively, if you want to fill the hole with something other than frosting, you can fill it with something edible that goes along with the cake -- fresh fruit, marshmallows, coconut, and pecans all work.
