Pumpkin Spice Buttercream Frosting

This pumpkin spice buttercream frosting was made to pair with the molasses cake.


  • 1 cup unsalted butter (or salted butter)
  • 3-4 cups of icing sugar (also known as confectioners’ sugar and powdered sugar)
  • 1/4 tsp salt (DO NOT add salt if you are using salted butter)
  • 1/2 tbsp vanilla extract
  • up to 4 tbsp of milk or heavy cream (I used 1% milk)
  • 1/2 to 1 tbsp of pumpkin spice (depending on taste)
  1. Beat the butter until smooth.
  2. Add 3 cups of icing sugar and combine.
  3. Add the vanilla, salt (if using salted butter do not add salt), and 2 tbsp of milk or cream.
  4. Add pumpkin spice and combine.


If the icing is too thick, add milk.

If the icing is too thin, add icing sugar.
