I have a weakness for lemon. I make amazing Weight Watchers lemon donuts. My favorite dessert is lemon meringue pie. But my lemon cake is a very close second. 

 What to serve with Lemon Frosting

Whenever I have a great tasting dessert, I need a killer dinner idea. Some of my favorites dinner ideas are:

How to Store Lemon Frosting?

This lemon frosting used a base of homemade lemon pie filling and cool whip, so you will want to store this lemon frosting in the refrigerator. While I wouldn’t normally put a cake in the refrigerator, I do put my lemon cake with lemon frosting in the refrigerator because the cool whip can go bad at room temperature. 

Ingredients in Lemon Frosting

  • Lemon Pie Filling
  • 1 Cool Whip Container
  • Yellow Food Coloring – Optional – I do not use this. I don’t need the frosting to be bright yellow, but some people like that look. If you want the bright yellow look, add about 4 drops of food coloring. 

How to Make Lemon Frosting

Start by making the lemon pie filling. Once it is done, let it cool. 

When the filling is cool, combine the filling with the thawed Cool Whip. 

Then the frosting is ready to be used on a cake or cupcakes.
