How to make it

  • After sifting the confectioner's sugar, set aside temporarily.
  • Put butter into mixing bowl and start beating till smooth.
  • Add salt and lemon zest.
  • Add sugar slowly (and I mean slowly otherwise you will create a powdered cloud around you and the kitchen sink) - about one cup at a time.
  • Slow down mixture to help prevent sugar cloud from appearing.
  • Add egg white and two tablespoons of lemon juice to bowl. Continue mixing till very smooth.
  • Check consistency of frosting. If still too stiff, continue to add one tablespoon of lemon juice at a time until the right consistency is achieved. Some people like a stiffer frosting as others prefer a looser type.
  • Spread on your favorite just baked and cooled down cake.
  • You can substitute Orange for the lemon - which is also amazingly good on my fantastic fudge cake.

    It's very "zesty" but that will cut the sugar. Need to use it as decorating icing? Simply add more confectioner's sugar. Also using 1/2 butter and 1/2 Crisco - makes for an even longer lasting frosting that really holds up to going through that decorating tube!
