There's just something about fall that makes me want to break out my mega Costco container of cinnamon.
The aroma just makes your house smell all nice and cozy :)
I'm not a big Snickerdoodle cookie fan, but boy are they tasty in cupcake form!
Hope you like them too.
1 box yellow cake mix
1 cup buttermilk
1/3 cup canola oil
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
5 cup confectioners sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1-2 T heavy cream or milk
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line pan with cupcake liners.
Sift cake mix into a large mixing bowl. Add cinnamon and whisk together.
Add buttermilk, eggs and vanilla and mix just until combined.
Scoop batter into liners using a cookie scoop for even distribution.
Bake for 18-20 minutes or until done.
Cool completely before frosting.
In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream together the butter, powdered sugar and vanilla for 2-3 minutes on med-high speed. Lower the speed and add the cinnamon and milk. Beat for another 3-5 minutes until light and fluffy.
Frost cooled cupcakes.
Dust with raw sugar if desired.

(I use a Wilton 1M tip for frosting my cupcakes)
