Lemon Buttercream Frosting


1/2 cup butter, softened
4 cups powdered sugar
2 - 3 Tbsp heavy cream
2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp lemon zest
Yellow food coloring, optional


Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl, using an electric mixer blend together until smooth and fluffy about 1-2 minutes. Tint with yellow food coloring if desired.
Note: if you don't want the piled high style of frosting (if you don't like a lot of frosting) then half a batch would be enough. Personally I don't normally like a lot of frosting but this frosting is so good that I liked the piled high style for these, plus it made for prettier piping with the blueberry sauce =).
