Slowly add 2 cups of powdered sugar on low speed. Add more powdered sugar to desired consistency. Once the sugar has been absorbed, add the salt, lemon and vanilla extract. Add in remaining sugar, one cup at a time, until the buttercream has reached your desired spreading consistency. If it becomes too thick, add 1-2 teaspoons of coconut cream or heavy cream. Turn mixer to high speed and beat for an additional 2 minutes until smooth and fluffy.
