Butter Frosting
February 16, 2003

This was so easy!! My cousin and I made this at 2 am to frost a lemon cake. We added lemon extract and yellow food coloring to the frosting, and it was really good! Just make sure you put in enough of the powdered sugar, or it will get a bit runny and drip out the sides of the cake... Still tastes good, but looks kinda weird! Also, I'd recommend sifting the sugar before putting it in the frosting. We didn't do this because we didn't have a sieve handy, but I think it would have eliminated the somewhat gritty texture (that's why I gave it 4 stars).
