I used this cinnamon cream cheese frosting recipe on toasted ravioli cupcakes and Back to School cupcakes. It would also go great on oatmeal raisin cupcakes or snickerdoodle cupcakes.
Can you use this on an Italian Cream Cake?
I’ve actually never had Italian Cream Cake (better add that to my list!). However, I looked up some recipes and I don’t see why this frosting wouldn’t work. You might want to double the recipe to make sure you have enough for a whole cake.
Thanks! It’s a Southern favorite around here! I will try the Cinnamon Cream Cheese to add a new twist.
I just wanted to let you know that I used this frosting on some carrot cupcakes today and W-O-W! They turned out AMAZING! I am a huge fan of regular cream cheese frosting, but I feel like I used it a lot on many of my cupcakes, so I’ve been searching for something different to try out on them – I couldn’t be happier with the way they turned out! Exactly what I was looking for and more! I’ll be posting pictures soon! THANKS!
Kerry – Yay! I’m so glad it worked out for you!! Thanks for letting me know.
In my family we LOVE cinnamon! I bet the Madagascar vanilla will go well with this recipe!
I’m going to try it this weekend!
Do you think this icing would go well on top of apple cupcakes?
Katie – Of course! It would be perfect!
I can’t wait to try this recipe tomorrow. I’m making a pumplin cake drizzed with chocolate ganache… my plan is to fold some whipped cream into your recipe to lighten it up a little and use as the filling in between layers.
This frosting was amazing! I used it for some apple butter cupcakes, just posted about them.
I used this with Mexican Chocolate cupcakes and it taste amazing!
I found the cake recipe that called for cinnamon ice cream, I decided to turn that idea into cupcakes!
I’m going to try it on pumpkin cupcakes
Thanks for the recipe, can’t wait to try it out!
Has anyone here ever made chai latte cupcakes? I’m thinking about using this frosting on vanilla chai latte cupcakes.
Anon – I’ve made Chai Spice cupcakes. It was my very first cupcake (don’t laugh at how ugly they look http://www.cupcakeproject.com/2007/05/chocolate-chai-spice-first-cupcakes.html). This frosting would go really well with it. For Chai latte you could also add a touch of instant coffee to the frosting.
I used coconut extract with the cinnamon! It was delish!
I’m making a pumpkin cake, do you think this icing would work well?
I used this frosting last night on top of snickerdoodle cookie dough cupcakes… snickerdoodle cookie dough inside a butter cupcake – they are amazing!
can it be used on top of cinnamon buns?
I used this tonight on a pumpkin spice cake….turned out amazing! great frosting recipe! Thanks!
Anon – It would be great on cinnamon buns!
Hello! I’m so excited to make this! I’m going to make it with some apple butter cupcakes. I am making 3 dozen cupcakes, how many cupcakes would this recipe frost? Should I double it? Thanks!!
Nice frosting! Made it for the cupcake inside a cupcake recipe. I’ve just had a foodgasm! The combination of flavors was fantastic!
what the poop does T stand for in 1 t vanilla extract or vanilla bean paste
Can I use a canned cream cheese frosting & add cinnamon & use that?
How many cupcakes will this recipe cover? Sounds delicious!
omg, for a couple of days i have toting the idea of a chai spiced frosting with me. having read the above, i feel very reassured that i am not crazy.
I’m thinking about using this recipe on a birthday cake I’m making for a friend, but I’m not quite sure how much frosting this recipe makes. Can anyone please tell me how much 1 batch of frosting makes??
Hi there, I made an italian spiced olive oil cake earlier today and wanted something a bit tart to ice it with to cut the richness of the oil, would this frosting work do you think? It sounds yummy!! Thanks
I am a FACS teacher and we use it on gingerbread men for the holidays. My friends all love its rich flavor.
[...] I always talk flavor first because no matter how cute my back to school cupcakes look (and aren’t they adorable?), it’s the taste that matters. The super moist back to school cupcakes taste like a combination of banana bread and carrot cake with bits of apple mixed in to remind you that Fall is coming. I didn’t want the back to school cupcakes to taste like spice cakes (I wanted the fruit to shine), so I left out the cinnamon and nutmeg that are often found in banana and carrot cakes. Instead, I introduced a little cinnamon spice by topping the back to school cupcakes with cinnamon cream cheese frosting. [...]
