I made this as directed egg yolk and all and it is just a beautiful frosting! I of course had to adjust the measurements of the juices a bit to get the frosting to the perfect consistency (no recipe for frosting can be precise so should not be criticized if more or less powdered sugar or liquid needs to be added). This is a light fluffy citrus frosting that was the perfect choice to frost Rainbow Citrus Cake also from this site.
This was easy and tasty. As I do with all frosting recipes I doubled it. I omitted the egg yolk and added in addition to the juice some orange flavored liquor. This has a nice subtle flavor. I will definately make this again.
Awesome!!! Since I was not making this for my family I did not use the egg yolk. I am not sure of the purpose of the yolk - I have never made a frosting that called for one. I also only used 3 cups of sugar and with the lack of the the moisture from the yolk I ended up adding in more lemon and orange juice. It was perfect for piping on my mini cupcakes.
This frosting tasted great hardened on the outside and kept soft on the inside. However... it was EXTREMELY unpleasant to make and work with. It was very stiff and we had to add a lot of liquid to make it workable.
