Directions

Blend room temperature cream cheese until smooth. Add melted butter and mix. Sift icing sugar a little at a time into the cream cheese mixture and blend until combined. Add lemon juice, zest and vanilla. Spread on top of your favorite cake.
I use this to top carrot cake and my cake serves 24, therefore this icing is 24 servings.

    i found the lemon to be a little strong when i first made it though it wasn't nearly as bad the following morning. i think next time, i'd cut it in half. it was also a little runny but i just dipped the cupcake tops in the icing & it stiffened a little by this morning, too. - 2/11/10

  • I love this recipe! It is perfect on spice cake, too. We always make a double batch so it can be a thick, delicious treat. - 10/9/12

  • Really, really good - I put it on my carrot cake. I omitted the lemon zest. Not a skimpy little portion either. I used the low-fat brick kind of cream cheese (not tub). I made 2 batches, added a bit o' peppermint extract to 2nd to frost my chocolate cupcakes, with crushed ppmnt candy on top. A+ - 2/2/11

  • I omitted the lemon and used only vanilla, butter, cream sugar and 2 cups of icing sugar. You can also add OJ or milk to thin down the consistency. Amazing on carrot cake! - 2/20/10
