6Lemon Icing:

Combine 2 cups confectioners' sugar, 3 tablespoons of lemon juice concentrate and 2 tablespoons of softened butter or margarine, mix until smooth..

If you like a lot of icing; double the batch.

I find that the icing is a bit thick, I like mine thinner, so , I added about a tablespoon of cream.
