Cinnamon-Vanilla Frosting Shots

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Lainey39

This creamy, sweet frosting begs to be slathered on carrot cake or banana bread. But, if frosting shots are more your style, it's also delicious on its own. Consider dusting the shots with a sprinkle of cinnamon.

This frosting is fantastic! My daughter made (cut in half) for a recipe of cake balls and it tasted amazing. Reminded me of a cinnamon roll. Looking forward to trying it on other things too. Thanks for posting!
