  1. In a large mixing bowl, beat heavy cream with a whisk (attached to a stand mixer or a handheld electric mixer) for 2-3 minutes until thickened. Slowly beat in the powdered sugar,lemon extract, lemon zest, and clear jel.
  2. Beat an additional 2-3 minutes until desired consistency.
  3. Frost cooled cupcakes and refrigerate for one hour. Serve cold and enjoy. Keep cupcakes in refrigerator for up to 3 days.


*I added 2 drops of yellow gel food coloring to my cupcakes to give them a bright color! This is optional.
