Cinnamon Sugar Cream Cheese Frosting

Sharing one of my “go to” frosting recipes that I’ve used for years.  Adding cinnamon to my cream cheese frosting is dangeously delicious! Some people make frosting for cupcakes….I have to admit, sometimes I make this frosting just for digging in with a spoon or spreading over graham crackers.  Yikes it’s good.

Hope you enjoy!!

    Thanks for this recipe; it sounds yummy. What kind of cupcakes are it best on? Seems like it would be good on a gingerbread cupcake so will have to look for a recipe for those.
