Lemon Frosting

I am making mini cupcakes for a baby shower and I was planning on doing vanilla cupcakes, half with chocolate ganache and the other half with a lemon frosting. Any suggestions for how to make a lemony frosting?

Go ahead and make a conventional buttercream, and add some finely grated lemon zest - very finely grated, as with a Microplane. Sounds like some lovely flavors!

If you really want to "lemon it up", add a bit (1 tsp or less) of Lemon Oil to your buttercream or cream cheese frosting.
