I wanted to try some of the frosting recipes on Wilton so I tried this lemon buttercream. It makes a thin consistency. I was able to thicken it a little to do the shell border. I had made the daises, violets and pansies ahead of time in royal icing. My sister put the leaves on for me as the kiddo really needed to go to bed before I could finish. I didn't really like the lemon frosting. Not as lemony as I was hoping for. I want to try the peanut butter buttercream next.
