Lemon is one of my favorite flavors. It’s bright and sunshiny and says, “Be happy.” It also tastes delicious in this luscious Lemon Buttercream Frosting.

Want to add a little sunshine into your life? Then buttercream is your friend. Lemon buttercream, to be more specific. It’s light and tart and sweet and makes you pucker into a smile.

We’ve got four birthdays and three special occasions coming up in the next 7 weeks and already there’s one request for several batches of this Lemon Buttercream Frosting. It’s that good.

It’s also just enough to frost the cupcakes with a spatula. If you want to pipe the frosting as pictured make a double batch of the lemon buttercream.

Also, be sure to lick the spoon!

Looking for other frostings? Try this Easy Chocolate Buttercream or this standard Vanilla Buttercream Frosting.

    Eek, this is killing! I just rejoined weight watchers. I could eat a cupcake but not a whole batch which is what might happen with that frosting!
