Brown Sugar Buttercream


  • 1 stick of butter softened
  • 1/4 cup of light brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 4-5 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 cup of half and half milk can be used as well, more if needed


  • Beat together your butter, brown sugar and cinnamon until fluffy.
  • Add your vanilla and mix well.
  • Slowly add your powdered sugar – how much you add will depend on the consistency you like your frosting. For a stiffer frosting add more, for a more glaze like frosting, add less.
  • Beat in mixer and add in your half and half, a small amount at a time until your frosting is the desired consistency.
  • Continue beating on high for two minutes.
