Fresh Cinnamon and Ginger Buttercream

Jump to recipe


You know the Delicious Pumpkin and Pecan Cupcakes I made recently, this is the amazing cinnamon and ginger buttercream that goes with it. This buttercream doesn’t only go well with a pumpkin cupcake, but it’s also a great filling for cakes. It’s hard to explain exactly what it tastes like, just that it tastes like cinnamon and ginger with a hint of lemon. You really have to try it to understand how good it really is.

Let’s start making the Cinnamon and Ginger Buttercream

For those of you that see a slight difference in the last photo. I updated this post with a new photo when I made the recipe again. Just because it looked even more delicious when I made it again 🙂

Like I said earlier, you can use it as a topping for cupcakes (it goes really well with my Pumpkin Pecan Cupcakes) or as a filling for a cake. Just try it and let me know if you like it!
