I was looking for a frosting that would complement a butterscotch bundt cake that I was making for a party. After looking through lots of recipes I found this and decided to give it a try. What a great decision that was! It's a delicious frosting - nice and sweet with a great cinnamon taste. It was the perfect frosting for the butterscotch cake. I definitely plan on trying the snickerdoodle cake recipe too because I'm sure it's excellent also. This would also be a great frosting for cinnamon rolls. My daughter even spread some extra frosting on Ritz crackers and had a nice sweet snack.
