1/3 cup soft butter or margarine
1/8 tsp. salt
About 3 cups sifted confectioner's sugar
About 1/8 to 1/4 cup lemon juice
A light lemony frosting - great for a cake for a garden party or high tea.
Yield: enough frosting for a two-layer 8-inch or 9-inch cake, or a 9x9x2 cake
With an electric mixer on medium speed (or with a spoon), thoroughly mix butter with salt and 1 cup confectioner's sugar until light and fluffy.
Add remaining sugar and lemon juice alternately, beating until very smooth and of spreading consistency.
