Make the buttercream frosting by beating together the butter and powdered sugar, then add in the remaining lemon zest, lemon extract and heavy cream until smooth.

Add the cake to a bowl fitted in your stand mixer with a paddle attachment, and turn on until cake is crumbled. Add frosting 1 tablespoon at a time, you won’t need more than ⅓ -½ cup frosting. You can use your hands to mix thoroughly. Chill the batter for at least 3 hours or overnight.

Measure the cake and roll into 1 inch sized balls. Place on a wax or parchment paper lined baking sheet. If you feel they got warm, you may need to chill again for 20-30 minutes.
