Cinnamon Buttercream Frosting

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Jamia Motsinger

This is from The Cake Mix Doctor. Posted to go with Tomato Soup Spice Cake, but I think it'd be good with any spice cake recipe. Very simple to make. If you want plain buttercream frosting, omit cinnamon and replace it with another teaspoon of vanilla.

I am the food service director/chef for an adult living facility and I made apple cupcakes the other day. I wanted a cinnamon frosting to go with them and I chose this recipe. WOW!! It is easy and delicious and complimented the cupcakes beautifully. Thanks for sharing.
