  • Set the whisk attachment and slice in the butter on a gentle speed.
  • Once they are completely creamed, add in the sugar a little at a time and then the spice mix. Add in a tsp of mix if it tends to dry out.
  • Whisk gently till they are well incorporated and fluffy.
  • Top up your cool cupcakes with the fluffy goodness.


1 cup of frosting can approximately frost 12 cupcakes, so alter your quantities accordingly.
if you are not a fan of Pumpkin spice, try vanilla instead.
