Wanted to make sure I didn't make it too sloppy - thank you for posting. If you want to really pile up the icing - do 1.5 or double! - 02 Sep 2012
Lovely flavours. Next time I wouldn't add the milk as the buttercream was a little soft but a hit with all the family . - 28 Mar 2015
Most AWESOME lemon icing recipe I have ever tasted! I did leave out the milk b/c I wanted to pipe the icing on a cake. Also added 3 oz. cream cheese. I love that the recipe was by weight - always a better outcome for me b/c ingreds. are more exact. - 22 Apr 2016
