Hello Fellow Bakers,
so if you read my last post you would know that i was looking for a recipe for frosting to top off my Apple spice cupcake(if this isn't making any sense to you read my last post titled "Apple Spice Cake").so i decided to go with a cinnamon buttercream and it was delicious so here is my recipe!


1 cup solid vegetable shortening
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
7-8 teaspoons water
4 cups confectioners' sugar
2 teaspoons Meringue Powder
1 1/4 teaspoons cinnamon

Cream shortening, flavoring and water. Add dry ingredients and mix on medium speed until all ingredients have been thoroughly mixed together. Blend an additional minute or so, until creamy.

I have also made a wonderful Cinnamon Buttercream icing recently. I used half butter and half shortening, milk instead of the water, and 1/2 t. cinnamon oil instead of the cinnamon powder. That way my icing stayed a nice white color. It was yummy on a Spicy Red Velvet cupcake.
