Katie's Cayenne Cinnamon Frosting

We are so lucky at Baker Babes Bakery to have the greatest customers. When Katie Mallady picked up her cupcake order last week she shared with us her wonderful cayenne cinnamon frosting recipe. What a find! We love its flavorful spices and surprise subtle kick. This is definitely an adult frosting and a nice change from the typical sugar topping. Here's the recipe, so give it a try and let us know if you like it as much as we do. Thanks Katie Mallady!

1 stick butter (softened)
2 cups powdered sugar
2 Tbs. Sour Cream
1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla

Place butter in mixing bowl and beat on medium speed until creamy about 1 minute. Gradually add the 2 cups of powdered sugar and beat until fluffy. Add sour cream and vanilla to the bowl and beat for about 3 minutes. Add cinnamon and cayenne pepper and beat until well incorporated. Frosting for 12 cupcakes.
