Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting
Warm up your frosting by adding cinnamon! This Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting is perfect for any cinnamon based cake or cupcake. Like my Cinnamon Roll Cupcakes OR Churro Cupcakes!
This recipe makes enough frosting for 36 cupcakes and will also be great of a layered cake or sheet cake.
TIPS FOR A LIGHT AND FLUFFY FROSTING
- Good ingredients “real” butter not margarine
- Room temperature ingredients
- Be patient…you’ll need to whip the frosting at least 3 to 5 minutes (sometimes I do this step twice). This will allow air to incorporate into the butter and create the lightness you want.
- That’s it! It’s really not as hard as you might think
I love making cupcakes and cake from scratch, but if you find yourself in a time crunch or you don’t feel like messing with making the cupcakes or cake and the frosting from scratch. PLEASE make the frosting! You can add things to a cake mix to help with the flavor but there’s just nothing like homemade frosting.

You can freeze frosting? Making homemade cupcakes and frosting just got a whole lot easier! To freeze your frosting: Spoon the frosting into a labeled zip top bag and freeze. When ready to use, place the bag on the counter to come to room temperature. Spoon into a large mixing bowl. Whip for 3 to 5 minutes. This is to incorporate air into the frosting for a light and fluffy texture.

Thanks for the recipe! Tastes a lot like Cinnamon Toast Crunch!
I’m glad you like the recipe as much as I do!
I going to make some cinnamon cupcakes(apple compote filling) and you cinnamon frosting looks like it would be a great topping…do you think it would taste ok with a little nutmeg added and how much if any would you add? Thanks!!
Hi Suzanne, Yes! I think it would be awesome with a little nutmeg. Since nutmeg is such a strong spice I would start with 1/8 teaspoon and work up from there.
I made the today to pair with vanilla cupcakes. It is so tasty! I did have to add a little milk.
That’s awesome Amanda!
