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.


  1. Place butter in large bowl.
  2. Beat on low 30 seconds.
  3. Add sugar about a cup at a time, beating on low between each addition.
  4. Add 3 tablespoons milk, vanilla and cinnamon.
  5. Beat on medium 1 minute.
  6. Blend in up to 1 tablespoons of milk if frosting is too thick.

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.

I made this recipe with just a few adjustments, with about a half cup of extra powdered sugar. I then whipped it using the whip attachment of my KitchenAid mixer. It was perfect...I served it with a Mexican Chocolate Cake.

I made this recipe for one cup. After reading the reviews about it being too sweet, instead of sifting a cup of sugar, I sifted a 1/2 cup of sugar at a time. I tasted it after the first 1/2 cup and it was PERFECT!! Ate it on my pumpkin bread and it was good! Definitly going to make it with the pumpkin bread for Thanksgiving! Thanks! :)
