  • Slowly add in 2 cups confectioners' sugar and 2 tbsp heavy cream a little at a time, alternating between each, while mixing on low over the course of about 3 minutes.
  • If your frosting needs a more stiff consistency, add remaining sugar. If your frosting needs to be thinned out, add remaining cream.
  • Add vanilla, cinnamon, and salt.
  • Beat on medium-high for about 2-3 minutes until frosting is light and fluffy.
  • Frost or fill your baked goods or just lick the beaters.
