I created this frosting & the Cake recipe for my wonderful friend Phyllis Lively who lives in the State of Texas, it is representative of her beautiful smile & personality & big heart, & this frosting like the cake is big in all categories. It is full of flavor & very impressive when served. It is a large cake like TEXAS & this frosting really does compliment it very nicely.

I made this cake for an event in Arkansas, & it was a huge success. It has bold lemon lime flavors, & is so tasty & satisfying, especially if you love the tartness of lemons. Once it was cut it was gone in no time.

How to Make TART LEMON LIME FROSTING

Step-by-Step

  1. Prepare the frosting by creaming the butter with the powdered sugar and pudding mix. These are some of the ingredients used for this recipe. I used some additional ingredients to create this recipe.
  2. Then add in the lemon & lime Juice and yellow food coloring if desired to add a more vibrant lemon color.
  3. Then add evaporated milk if needed in 1 tablespoon increments, until frosting reaches the spreading consistency you desire.
  4. Garnish cake with additional Lemon and lime slices if desired, and accent with maraschino cherry halves. I used green silk leaves to line the cake platter, before adding the cake. I also used silk Roses in the center of the cake to make an impressive presentation.
  5. Please Note: Because I created this frosting for an event that was 650 Miles away, I made what I knew was more than I needed for the cake. Extra frosting can be stored in the fridge to be used at a later time if desired. This frosting was created for the Yellow Rose of Texas Cake in honor of my great friend Phyllis Lively who lives in Texas and is a member of our Just A Pinch Family. She is a BEAUTIFUL YELLOW ROSE !YELLOW ROSE OF TEXAS LEMON/LIME BUNDT CAKE
