Cinnamon Buttercream Frosting

Kate's Safe & Sweet - Snickerdoodle Cupcake with Cinnamon Stick

Cinnamon buttercream frosting is quickly becoming a favorite for us in the fall. We have used this on snickerdoodle cupcakes and apple pie cupcakes. We have plans to use this on a pumpkin cake too soon! This frosting is super simple to make. All you need is our Vanilla Frosting Mix as the base, shortening/butter, your choice of milk, and some cinnamon. That’s it!
