Cinnamon & Spice Cake Frosting

"Very quick and easy way to prepare a fruit dip when wanting to serve it for dessert. I also use this to "frost" a spice cake as it makes a very light and tasty topping without all the sweet."

  • In a small bowl, combine the whipped topping, brown sugar and spices (I use a whisk to do this).
  • Serve with a fruit tray as a dip or use as a "frosting" for a spice or carrot cake.

  1. Most spice cake frosting's on this site are made with tons of nastiness, huge amounts of sugar, butter, cream cheese. This recipe is much lighter and does not overwhelm the spice cake. I used some good whipping cream and added a bit of vanilla.
  2. The whipped topping is already sweet so I decided to omit the brown sugar. I used 1 tsp of ground cinnamon. It has a nice taste. I used it to frost half of your cake : recipe#339024 Thanks melissa :) Made for 123 hit wonders
  3. I'm rating this one without stars... I made this tonight and served as a dip with strawberries and a golden delicious apple. My DH and I both thought is was much too sweet for both the strawberries and the apples. While we were eating it, I kept thinking that it probably would be good on a spice cake.... thus the no star review (not so good as a fruit dip, but probably really good on a spice cake although I haven't tried it). I did appreciate that this recipe is low calorie and uses items I usually have on hand - the hint of nutmeg is very awesome in this! Made for My 3-Chef's game.
