Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting Recipe

Not vegan, but designed to go on top of vegan cupcakes.  I have issues.  

I made this recipe (based on my sister's Cream Cheese Frosting recipe) to put on top of my cranberry-orange cupcakes.  I topped the whole shebang** with a sugared cranberry slice, just for that little extra touch.

8 oz cream cheese
6 tbsp butter
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
Zest of one lemon
Juice of one lemon

Beat cream cheese, butter, and vanilla together until smooth and fluffy. Add confectioner's sugar. Beat until creamy. Makes about 1 1/2 cups. 

** IMPORTANT NOTE! "Shebang" is in my spell check's dictionary.  That is all.
