Ginger Spice Icing

For the Chai Masala Cupcakes.

I found two ways of going about this. Either a cream cheese icing, or a buttercream. I tried out the buttercream.

Ginger Spice Buttercream Icing

6oz Butter

1/2 tsp. Ginger Powder

1/2 tsp. Garam Masala

10oz Icing sugar

Bit of hot water

1. Beat the butter till it's gone light yellow [or sunshine yellow, as I like to call it]

2. Mix the spices in with the sugar, and add that slowly to the mix butter.

3. Add the water slowly to the mix. It should go a nice smooth consistency.

For spreading onto the cakes, I put a dollop on, and spread it with the back of a bread knife [or a spatula].

Ginger Spice Cream Cheese Icing

I haven't tried this one [yet], but when I do, I shall post. You could effectively get a normal cream cheese icing recipe, and add the spices.
