So we all know that cake is just an frosting delivery system. Today we are talking Rum Chata Buttercream frosting.(Already sounds delicious doesn't it)
If you look at my ingredients you will notice that I have a nutmeg grater. Seriously, you must must start using fresh ground nutmeg in place of that powder stuff it is like a totally different spice. Get yourself a nutmeg grater! Also note for those who like to measure exactly, when I say a dash of something I mean about 1/8th to 1/4th teaspoon.
You will need
(I used this for 1/2 batch of spice mini cupcakes for a full batch of frosting just double everything)
Half stick butter
1 cup powdered sugar
1 oz Rum Chata
In your mixer cream the butter and then mix in the powdered sugar. When mostly mixed in add the Rum Chata, cinnamon , and nutmeg. Mix until completely combined and smooth. It will be a mild ivory color if you want to add food coloring now is the time. Add to cooled spice cake with knife or piping bag.
