Ingredients for Lemon Kissed Buttercream Frosting
2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
5-6 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. plus 2 tsp. whole milk
2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
4 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
With an electric mixer, cream the butter and salt for about 30 seconds.
Add half of the powdered sugar and the milk to the butter and beat again until combined. Scrape down the bowl.
Add the remainder of the powdered sugar, vanilla, and lemon juice. Beat until combined. Scrape down the bowl again.
Beat on high speed for 5-6 minutes or until the frosting is fluffy. Add yellow food coloring.
Scoop frosting into piping bag and refrigerate 2o minutes before frosting cupcakes. This allows the frosting to set and pipe better. Pipe onto cupcakes and sprinkle with yellow or pink sugar and stick straw (cut in half) into cupcake to make it look like a glass of lemonade.
Yummy Lemon Curd!
Ready to party!
Nice and refreshing, just like a cold glass
