I made this to dress up some white cupcakes since I had 4 egg yolks to use from having made the cake. Very tasty. Not too strong but sweet & tart at the same time. I didn't have the lemon zest since I used bottled lemon juice but added a 1/2 tsp of lemon extract. If you're not a fan of standard frosting on a cake, this will hit the spot.
