Chai Buttercream with Cream Cheese

If you enjoy warm spices and ordering chai tea at your favorite coffee shops, this cozy chai buttercream is the perfect frosting for you to decorate a layer cake, cupcakes, and more. 

To begin, in a small bowl or ramekin, create your chai mix by combing all ingredients for your own spice blend before setting aside.

With a hand mixer or the bowl of a stand mixer and paddle attachment, beat the butter on high speed until smooth, about 2 minutes. Do the same with cream cheese, mixing for another minute until smooth.

Add powdered sugar, pinch of salt, and vanilla extract. Continue mixing for about a minute, scraping down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula as needed.

Add your chai spices to the mixing bowl, incorporating until well-combined.

Next, place your frosting into a piping bag and start decorating!

However you decide to use this frosting, feel free to dust the end result with some cinnamon, cinnamon sugar, or even add a cinnamon stick on top of the cake or cupcake.
