You can use your regular buttercream and add the zest of lemons in and/or on the frosting.

 

You can use your regular buttercream.

 

You can use your regular buttercream and add some raspberry to create raspberry buttercream.

 

I've made similar lemon/raspberry cakes/cupcakes and have used all the frosting combinations above--all of them taste great and compliment the cake & filling.

 

If you do not have a "regular buttercream", here is an excellent recipe for a crusting buttercream

ACream cheese icing is great on lemon cake! Cream cheese Swiss meringue would be even better.
