Fluffy Lemon Buttercream Frosting

Let me interrupt the top ten main dishes, for some absolutely delicious Fluffy Lemon Frosting. Last night I was looking for a fluffy lemon frosting, and I found this yummy recipe. It is {way} to good to keep to myself. My husband even LOVED it, and I've told you he's not big on treats....I know crazy....! This Fluffy Lemon Buttercream Frosting was amazing on top of my favorite Lemon Sour Cream Cupcakes.

Fluffy Lemon Buttercream Frosting


3 1/2 cups confectioners sugar
1/ 2 cup butter (1 stick), softened (just softened, not melted)
1/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon lemon zest


Mix the butter, lemon zest and vanilla together, making sure all the lumps are gone. Add the milk slowly and on high speed, until it is creamed into butter mixture. By the cup, mix in the sugar. Once the sugar is all in the bowl, cream on high for two minutes.


  1. Wow, this looks delish! Lemon cupcakes are my favorite :)

  2. This is a good frosting recipe. I've made it before when you posted it. It was so good and it makes me want to make some more right now. I'll have to try the lemon sour cream cupcakes with it this time.
