I made these for Easter this year and they went over really well. I think next time I will use a little more lemon flavor in the topping. As a side note, I used some of those lemon gummy candies that look like lemon wedges as a garnish on the top; they turned out cute and the gummy candy worked with the icing flavor.
I made these for a bridal shower and everyone LOVED them. I did add a little lemon zest in the frosting rather then just the top. I topped them with crushed up lemon head candy.
I made these for a family get together and everyone loved them! I wouldn't make any changes.
Absolutely delicious. I didn't change anything, but I did add yellow food coloring to the filling, just for effect. I also put plenty of lemon zest on top, but that was just for appearances. The frosting was fairly runny, so it doesn't look to beautiful. But it tastes amazing.
