Eats: Cinnamon Butter Cream Frosting

8:52 AM

Cup cake

More fall eats! This frosting recipe is super easy, and I feel really lazy for posting this, because it is honestly just this recipe with cinnamon added to it. I like this one more because I am a cinnamon fiend. 

Get
3 cups confectioners sugar
1 cup butter, softened
1 tsp vanilla extract 
2-3 tsp whipping cream 
1-2 tsp cinnamon (to taste)

Mix together butter and sugar, then the rest of the ingredients. Mix well for about three minutes, or until everything is smooth. 

I made this twice in the past two months for two different birthday parties. The first time I made fall-themed confetti cake, and in these pictures I made it with pumpkin cake. I liked both, and all of the cupcakes were eaten both times, so I think it is safe to say that people liked the frosting. Mmm, frosting.

That is all I have for today, but I am going to try to squeeze out one or two more posts before my vacation week, so stay tuned!

  1. So weird fact about me...I don't like cake, but I love frosting. Especially butter and/or cream cheese frosting. This sounds so delicious!! It would be good to dip graham crackers in to. (Is that gross?) (Don't care if it is.)

  2. YES! I made a similar frosting for some pumpkin spice cupcakes I made earlier this fall and it was amazing. SO amazing. I might make gingersnap cupcakes and use the same frosting for that. YUM.

  7. Kris decided to tell me he 'doesn't really like cinnamon' the other day. Like, what the fuck?! I think I need to file for a hypothetical divorce.

    I had all these great cinnamon related recipes that I wanted to try! Like this buttercream!
