Lemon Frosting

This is worth making a cake for. It is good on lemon cake, white cake, or sugar cookies ... or off the spoon.1/2 cup butter, softened
2 boxes or 1 large bag powdered sugar
juice of 2 lemons
zest of 2 lemon
milk: 2 Tbsp to 1/2 cup (depending on the consistency you want. Add slowly.)
1/4 tsp lemon extract (you might not need this depending on how much juice you get out of the lemon and how you like it so DO NOT add until the end!!)

Mix the butter and powdered sugar until mixed. Texture will not be smooth, but will be consistent. Add lemon juice and zest. Mix until smooth. Add a little milk and check to see if you like it. Taste it. You can now decide whether to add the extract or not. Mix and add milk until you like it. Enjoy!!

Note: You can add yellow food coloring if you wish, but I like seeing the flecks of lemon zest and they show up better without it.
