When I want to make a great lemon frosting/icing as I most times call it. This is a really good recipe. I do refrigerate the cake after it is frosted unless I am serving it immediately.
Take it out of the refrigerator several minutes before slicing the cake. Refrigerate leftover frosting up to 5 days.
Great on a butter cake or pound cake that lemon would compliment.
Here's my buttery pound cake recipe just in case you'd want to make it.

1/4 cup butter, softened
