well, i would think the acidity in the fresh lemon would make it curdle.

Maybe you should try lemon extract?

I have TONS of white chocolate cream cheese icings. here is one of them

# 2 ounces white chocolate
# 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
# 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
# 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
# 4 cups confectioners' sugar
# 2 tablespoons heavy cream

Do you have to keep the cake refrigerated once it has this icing on it because of the cream cheese?

Yeah, I'm sure it needs refrigeration. I don't sell refrigerated cakes so only family gets the cream chz iced cakes and I don't refrigerate them all of the time. But for business purposes, yes refrigerate.

I think it would color just as
well as any other buttercream.
