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! :)
I had read the other reviews, and after making the icing, I thought it was too sweet. I forged ahead and spread it on top of my cinnamon butter yellow cupcakes, and I was so glad I did! I could eat the whole batch! (I couldn't eat the frosting straight out of the bowl, and I'm a "frosting girl", but with the cupcakes - to die for!)
I'll give 4 stars instead of 5 because my daughter didn't like it, but my son and I were in love! I didn't have quite enough powdered sugar so it was super creamy buttery not quite as thick as regular frosting, but I'm sure had I had the amt called for it would have been just right. Either way we all loved it. Yes it was sweet, but not in a regular powdered sugar frosting way. We loved it: yummy and easy with ingredients we always have on hand, we will make this again and again.
This was way too sweet. I was going to use it on a cake for my mom's bridal shower. I am so glad I had the foresight to try all the recipes I am going to use before the actual shower. This would not have gone over well with my guests at all.
oh yeah...this is definitely OUTSTANDING! It was just the right amount of cinnamon...It was light an fluffy and unlike so many recipes I've tried here on Zaar, it actually made enough for a 2-layer or 13 x9 cake! Thank you for posting this 'Cake Mix Doctor' recipe!
mmm. yummy. i could have eaten the whole bowl of this stuff- without cake! i made it to go with this chocolate-spice-cupcakey-things i made. verry good. thanks!
