Pumpkin Pie Spice Buttercream Frosting
1/3 cup of softened butter
¼ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 ½ cups sifted confectioners’ sugar
3-4 tablespoons International Delight Pumpkin Pie Spice Coffee Creamer
Pumpkin pie spice for decoration
Cream the butter, salt and vanilla until light, fluffy and smooth. I made some homemade vanilla months ago and used that in this recipe.
Slowly begin adding the powdered sugar one cup at a time, reserving the final half of cup. Scrap bowl when needed. After the third cup of sugar is mixed in add three tablespoons of the International Delight Pumpkin Pie Spice creamer. Beat until smooth and fluffy.
Check the flavor and consistency of the frosting. If you feel that it tastes good and it is thick enough you’re done. If you want a stiffer frosting, one that is thick enough and pipes well add the remaining tablespoon of creamer and the reserved half cup of powdered sugar. Beat on medium until smooth. Once the frosting is smooth turn the mixer up to medium high and beat for two to three more minutes.
Fit a pastry bag with your favorite tip, fill bag with frosting and frost completely cool cupcakes.
