Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting

This icing goes wonderfully with any pumpkin or spice cupcake. It can also be used on carrot cakes or any cake that needs a subtle creamy not sugary frosting.


  • 5                      oz cream cheese, softened
  • 3                      tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • ¼                     teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1                      cup confectioners’ sugar
  • ½                     teaspoon cinnamon


  1. Beat cream cheese, butter, and vanilla with an electric mixer at high speed until fluffy.
  2. Sift confectioners’ sugar and cinnamon over cream cheese mixture, and then beat at medium speed until incorporated.
  3. Spread frosting over top of cooled cake.
