Add zesty, creamy Limoncello Buttercream to your next culinary masterpiece courtesy of our May Chef of the Month, Chef Karen. This frosting is perfect for cake fillings or frosting toppers (or eat it alone, we don’t judge). Chef Karen’s perfected recipe can be found below.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Butter – Softened (we used Salted Sweet Cream Butter)

  • 5 cups of Powdered Sugar

  • 1 teaspoon clear vanilla extract 

  • 1 tablespoon of Lemon Zest

  • 1/4 cup of freshly squeezed Lemon Juice

Directions

  1. In a mixer, add the butter and the lemon juice.
  2. Mix together on low speed until they are completely combined.
  3. Add the powdered sugar one cup at a time and continue to beat on medium speed until the frosting is creamy.
  4. Add the lemon zest and 1 small drop of yellow food coloring (if desired)
  5. Add clear vanilla extract
  6. Continue to mix.
  7. If the frosting is too runny, add 1/2 cup additional powdered sugar.
  8. Keep adding powdered sugar 1/2 cup at a time until you have the frosting at the desired consistency.
