I have to apologize for these photos. The sun has not been showing it’s shining face in my neighborhood for the last 3 days. Therefore, these aren’t has bright as I would like them. When my natural light is limited, things don’t always work out...photographically. (is that a word?)

BUT…these cupcakes are amazing, so, no worries there. 👍

Soft cinnamon cupcakes topped with a fluffy cinnamon buttercream frosting. These are then topped with a delightful cinnamon sugar mixture. If you like snickerdoodle cookies, these will fit your bill perfectly!

Here is your ingredients list:

  • Flour
  • Baking powder + salt +ground cinnamon
  • Butter flavored shortening
  • Sugar
  • Egg whites
  • Vanilla
  • Milk

Additional ingredients for frosting: Powdered sugar and butter.

Want to replace the butter flavored shortening with butter or oil? See this link for conversions.

Why do your cupcakes have divots in them? I used parchment paper to line my pan. The divots are from the paper. If you use regular liners, yours will look a little less “divoted”.

What size frosting tip was used in these cupcakes? I like to frost my cupcakes with a 1M tip from Wilton & these silicone pastry bags.

To Make Cinnamon Sugar Mixture for topping: Mix 1/4 cup of sugar with 1 tablespoon of ground cinnamon.
