2B3C Icing – The Delicious Icing That Needs A New Name

I topped that Moist and Mellow Yellow Cake in my previous post with this delicious icing:

Browned Butter Cinnamon Cream Cheese Icing

That name is far too long. You can’t tell your co-workers you made “Yellow Cake with Browned Butter Cinnamon Cream Cheese Icing”. It simply doesn’t fit on a post-it note.

Better names: CinnaMmmm, CinnaYum!, Breakfast Icing, Cinnatoastfrost…

This icing is simple to make AND it’s posted on the web – originally found in Southern Living magazine.

TIP: I halved this recipe, using just a half stick of butter and 16 oz of powdered sugar, and it was enough to cover my sheet cake just fine. I measured the powdered sugar on a scale, but if you don’t have one, it’s about 3 and 2/3 cups of powdered sugar.

The thing I love about finding new recipes is learning ways to tweak them. I want to make other versions of browned butter frosting/icing because it adds a depth of flavor (think nutty, caramel-ish) I think would work well in other desserts.
