And what do you do with left over lemon curd?! Well clearly…you make lemon cream cheese frosting!
Easy. As. Pie. I whipped up a batch of cupcakes (from a box…what! whaaat!) and put on this homemade lemony frosting! It’s a special touch you can add to any of your cake-ish baked goods, I think. And if you make the mascarpone pancakes with lemon curd and blueberries you’re gonna have left overs so you might as well do something good with it!
PS – OOOOH what if you dipped fruit in the frosting!! :O Heaven!
