We all love lemon so we want a good strong lemon flavour not a 'hint' of it.
    Help!
    Do you have any cream cheese? Even in the freezer?

    I usually DO NOT like frosting made with powdered sugar....most at too 'gaggy sweet'..............check this out......and I would add more lemon. Maybe even some lemon zest.........

    If you do something great with a STRONG lemon flavor....let me know....I love lemon stuff.......if it is a pretty strong flavor and not an artificial flavor......like so many are.

    Even if it's boxed lemon, couldn't you still add the extract to it or maybe a real minced lemon rind and juice? Maybe?

    Or just buy some lemon drop candies and use to decorate.
