What do you think is the best flavor icing for a pumpkin spice cake? I was thinking brown butter with maybe some cinnamon added. I would love any other suggestions. Thanks.

Brown butter is great, with some sage, also cream cheese is good too!

I just made one last weekend and I put some pumpkin pie spice in my Vanilla Buttercream -- combined with the pumpkin spice cake it was TO DIE FOR! icon_lol.gif

Cinnamon cream cheese butter cream! It's a great combo.

What is brown butter icing? I haven't heard of it before.

Brown butter is easy but delicious! Put 1 stick of unsalted butter in a small saucepan. Melt it slowly over medium heat for about 10 minutes until it is a nut brown color. Slowly pour it into a bowl and leave any burned bits behind. Then add 2 cups of powdered sugar, 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract, and 2-3 tablespoons of milk to thin it. It worked really well for dipping the top of cupcakes!

You could also make a cream cheese icing flavoured with maple syrup. Made the recipe from Georgetown Cupcakes for their pumpkin spice cupcakes and that was the icing recipe. Really lovely.

I made a cream cheese buttercream and added Pumpkin Pie Spice flavored coffee creamer in place of the liquid. Yummy!
