Fresh Lemon Buttercream Frosting

Lemon is bright and fresh and delicious!

This is a recipe for a delicious, fresh, and simple lemon butter-cream frosting!
Butter-cream is my favorite kind of frosting to make because it is simple and you can make virtually any flavor you can think of. This recipe is quick and simple and only has 5 ingredients! Anyone can make this and be proud of creating something so delicious from scratch!

Lemon is a great flavor to use for frosting because it pairs well with many other flavors and adds freshness to any recipe. I used it to frost some vanilla cupcakes and it really made them pop! Here is how to make it:


  • 1 Cup- Butter Softened (room temperature, not melted)
  • 3 3/4 Cup- Confectioner's Sugar
  • 1 Lemon (you will use the juice and the zest)
  • 1 tsp- Vanilla Extract (use gluten free vanilla extract for g-free recipes)
  • 1/8 tsp- Salt


  1. Combine butter, sugar, and salt and beat until well combined
  2. Add lemon juice, zest, and vanilla and continue to beat until light and creamy
Here is the result! YUM!

I hope you enjoy trying this recipe out!
