Spice Cupcakes with Brown Butter Cream Cheese Frosting

Updated November 1, 2023

Cassidy Morris has a special place in her heart for Betty Crocker™ Delights Super Moist™ Spice Cake Mix. (We can relate!) Inspired by her nostalgia for her favorite childhood treat and her love of baking, Cassidy brings a homemade spin to this classic mix.

With her own brown butter cinnamon cream cheese frosting, Cassidy’s simple and super approachable twist is perfect for any Thanksgiving and Christmas gathering


As far as the cupcake-to-frosting ratio is concerned, Cassidy struck gold in her recipe. The beautiful swirl of special browned butter frosting adds a nice little bite, and the perfect little dash of cinnamon on top adds just a bit more spice and lots of fall vibes.

If you want a dessert that will fulfill your fall-flavor cravings and is also easy to whip up for a crowd, give Cassidy’s cupcakes a try. Or if you’re going low-key this year, grab your sweater and slippers, pour yourself something warm and bake up a batch, just for you. You’ll love the fall scents that fill your home and your sweet tooth will be over the moon, too!
