It’s October!! Which means it’s finally ok to start thinking, baking and decorating all things fall. Let’s just pretend we really haven’t already started. 🙂 You can usually find me in the kitchen this time of year. My kids have birthdays so I’m always mixing up some birthday treat, making a treat for a neighbor or friend, and sometimes I’m just baking for me because I love it! I decided to try to make a new frosting. I usually use the same frosting recipe anytime I make cupcakes. But I thought with all this fall baking, I really wanted to make a cinnamon cream cheese frosting to spread all over my fall baked goods.
I don’t love eating a lot of frosting on my cakes and cupcakes, but I sure love how it looks. So I usually always use a pastry bag and tip when I frost my cupcakes. I also have found that it goes a lot faster than trying to frost things with a knife.
I love the swirl this frosting tip makes on the cupcakes. I also love the color that the cinnamon brings to this frosting and that you can see specks of cinnamon all through out it.
And oh man does it taste good!! This frosting got rave reviews from my family, my neighbors and the young women from church!
I don’t know why I find frosting cupcakes so fun. It kind of is relaxing for me. I didn’t always do that great of a job, but I was determined to get it down. Sometimes they still don’t turn out perfect, but I keep working at it.
Here is a secret … even if you used a knife to spread this cinnamon cream cheese frosting on your baked goods, it would still taste so good!
