best cupcake frosting ever

im not a frosting fan, especially not on cupcakes. i always find them too sweet, too hard or too buttery

i love baking (not a fan of store bought baked goodies, i always find them too sweet/too chemical/too much icing/ too expensive) and today i made a batch of banana spice cupcakes for a sick friend

yeah i know cupcake craze that recently broke loose in the Middle East bla bla bla no seriously i don’t make cupcakes because they’r cute (although they are) but because they are easier to store and eat than a regular size cake, plus they make a nice present than regular big cake

for those of you who didn’t know (i hope that’s not too many people) a cupcake is simply a small size cake with lots of cute shit on top (yes same recipe as a normal sized cakes, yeah really. all you have to do is make your favorite normal size cake in small molds and adapt oven time to the mold used)

as this was a present i really wanted to frost the cakes, but as i am not a frosting fan (except for cream cheese frosting for carrot cake) i wasn’t sure what to do…….and what would go well with my mini banana bites (I made banana, cinnamon/nutmeg, walnut cupcakes)………….i trawled the internet for a few minutes and found honey cinnamon frosting

i had all the ingredients, recipe seemed simple and honey/cinnamon should go well with the cupcake. so i tried it and oh my this was the best frosting in the world, the texture was light, it wasn’t sickly sweet, and you could totally taste the cinnamon and honey…….oh and it only took  minutes to make

Honey & cinnamon frosting:

–  1 + 1/4 cup frosting sugar (sometimes called powder sugar or confectioners sugar. its the super powder white one)

– 1/2 cup unsalted butter at room temperature (it should be super soft but not melted)

– 1 table spoon honey (any honey would do)

– 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon (i put 1/4 teaspoon and it was fine)

put everything in a bowl, whisk with electric beater for a few minutes (till creamy)……aaaaand voila done. i used a teaspoon to frst the cakes no need for any fancy equipment. i frosted 20 cupcakes with the quantity and had some frosting left over (i used a little less than 1 teaspoon per cupcake but its up to taste)

perfect compliment to my spicy fruity cakes, thank you Martha Stewart 🙂
