Lemon Buttercream Frosting
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon lemon extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (I used regular dark-colored vanilla which gave the frosting a pretty off white color) A drop of yellow food coloring could also be added.
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons milk or heavy cream
  1. In the bowl of a mixer beat butter until smooth and fluffy and light in color.
  2. Add in powdered sugar, lemon extract and milk or heavy cream and mix on medium, scrape down the bowl to combine then mix on high until light and fluffy.
  3. Spread frosting onto the cake with an offset spatula, I decorated the cake with a slice of lemon and a lemon blossom from my tree. Other ideas are a fresh herb, lavender or sprinkles for a simple decoration.
