    Pinot Grigio's Note:

    This delicious cream cheese frosting recipe came with the Sprinkles Pumpkin Cupcake mix that I purchased from the Williams-Sonoma catalogue, and baked over the holidays this year. Sprinkles cupcakes have been featured on Oprah as one of her favorite things and, having eaten more than a few while I was in California last year, I would definitely have to agree! I have made other cream cheese frostings before but this one was the best in my opinion. Although it is featured with the pumpkin cupcake, I think it would pair equally well with a spice cake. This recipe generated enough to very generously cover 12 cupcakes. Use the best cream cheese, butter, cinnamon, and vanilla you have. I hope you enjoy it as much we did!

    My Private Note


    Serves: 12



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Using the flat beater in your electric mixer, beat cream cheese, unsalted butter, salt, and cinnamon on medium low speed until smooth and creamy (approximately 2 or 3 minutes).
    2. 2
      Reduce speed to low and gradually add the confectioners' sugar, beating until incorporated.
    3. 3
      Add the vanilla; beat just until mixed.
    4. 4
      Do not overbeat or the frosting will incorporate too much air. It should be creamy and dense like ice cream.
    5. 5
      Add milk, 1 teaspoon at a time, if frosting is not of a spreadable consistency.

      I am a HUGE fan of Sprinkles and come home with dozens at a time whenever I am traveling (we don't have one in Mpls)! I made the Moist Carrot Cake from and was browsing around for a good cream cheese recipe. I had forgotten about this one until google pulled it up after searching for cinnamon cream cheese. I have used this recipe year after year but never save it. It was the perfect pairing to the carrot cake! I now have the recipe saved, printed out and put into my recipe box at home. I can't wait to use it on everything this fall!!!!
