We absolutely love this spiced cream cheese frosting! It has the rich cream cheese flavor with the spice of the cinnamon and nutmeg. Perfect for all sorts of cakes, loaves, cookies, and more! Plus, it only takes minutes to come together but people will think it took you hours to come up with this flavorful concoction of deliciousness! This recipe would be the perfect amount of 24 cupcakes or a two layer cake. We would recommend cutting it by a quarter if you want to use it for a loaf cake as this makes almost 4 cups of frosting.
- 16 oz cream cheese softened
- ½ cup unsalted butter softened
- 4 cups powdered sugar
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/8 tsp salt
- ½ tbsp cinnamon

- In a large mixing bowl, blend cream cheese and unsalted butter.
- Add powdered sugar 1 cup at a time. Once all powdered sugar is fully incorporated, add remaining ingredients. Blend well.
- All done! Refrigerate until ready to use.
