Shannon’s Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting

Click photo to enlarge

This frosting is ah-mazing, and so, so simple.  It has a delicious, yet not overpowering lemony taste to it.

INGREDIENTS:
2 8 oz packages of room temperature cream cheese
2 sticks of room temperature butter
2 lbs of powdered sugar (confectioners sugar)
The zest of 4 large lemons

DIRECTIONS:

Cream the butter and cream cheese until smooth.  Add the sugar a little at a time, with the mixer on low speed.  Add the lemon zest and mix well.  Frosting will be white.  Refrigerate until using.

  1. It does make a lot of icing– enough for an entire cake or two dozen generously frosted cupcakes. I used yellow food coloring to get the frosting yellow. Thanks for visiting.
