The meringue frosting recipe, I got from Caro over at Wide-eyed and busy tailed. It could not have been any easier, seriously!!
You need an electric beater or a whisk and strong arms. A metal mixing bowl and a pot with simmering water. Poor the egg whites and sugar into the metal bowl and place over the simmering water. Make sure the bowl does not touch the water. Beat the egg whites and sugar until it is fluffy and white.and can keep its shape. Add the limoncello and mix. Pipe onto the cupcakes immediately. Sprinkle some lemon zest over the cupcakes and enjoy!
