Lemon Buttercream Frosting

lemon is arguably my favourite dessert flavour.  step aside chocolate and caramel, this is a job for citrus fruit.  
it appears my son is following in his dear mom's footsteps, because for his 12th birthday (wait what?  12) he requested a lemon cake.  done.  
happy to oblige.  
this year i went with a lemon buttercream frosting to top my store-bought boxed vanilla cake mix (skip judgement, boxed cake mixes are delicious)
happy birthday liam.  you are truly a blessing.
