Pumpkin Spice Buttercream is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is one of the best recipes I have tasted for buttercream frosting. It was so light and fluffy and worked great with the pumpkin spice cakes I made.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Had to be whipped quite awhile to rid it of the grainy texture. It stands up well for decorating and suits the pumpkin spice latte cupcakes well. My frosting wasn't as dark in color but still very similar. It's a bit sweet.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from My milk was too cold I guess because as I was mixing in the chocolate it beaded up :( It's not too bad tasting but not a smooth texture.
