The description of this is very misleading in that it is a lemon filling, or lemon curd, not a frosting. Having said that, this has a more mellow lemon flavor than other, similar recipes, but is also much richer, which I liked since I used it as as the filling for the three layer Rainbow Citrus Cake, also from this site. In hindsight I'd add two or three teaspoons of lemon zest for more tartness and flavor, but it really was fine as is.
I didn't like this at all. It was much to eggy for a frosting, my family and I thought it was terrible.
Very good!! I replaced 1/4C of the water with an additional 1/4C lemon juice and added an additional 1TBS of cornstarch so it would make a nice, thick filling for my white cake. I frosted it with homemade whipped cream--delicious combo!! Thank you for this recipe!
This recipe was so awesome!! I dreamed about it! I used it with a butter yellow cake mix and used fresh whipped whipping cream as an icing. Every one was crazy about it!! I love you Tammy!!
I thought I was in big trouble - had been doing a massive amount of baking and had miscounted how many eggs I required. Substituted a half cup of lemon yogurt and it worked. No one suspected a thing and it topped my Greek Lemon Cake beautifully.
Tastes like lemon merrange filling! Very good.
I added zest of 1 med-large lemon. I also reduced the sugar to 1C & reduced the butter to 1/4C, just because I didn't see the need for all of that extra saturated fat & sugar. Came out tasting like the lemon curd from a meringue pie (only better, imo) Yummy, yum, yum!!
This Filling/Icing is AMAZING. It is very easy, and soo good! It is a little sweet but very Delicious! Like another poster said, it is like meringue. I used it as an icing for my butter cake, and it was Great!
