This chai spice buttercream is an American buttercream flavored with warm spice. It tastes like a chai latte and is perfect on cupcakes, cookies, and more.

Ingredients Needed

Start by creaming the softened butter in a stand mixer with the paddle attachment on medium high for 5 minutes until creamy.

Step 1

Slowly mix in the spices, salt, and half of the powdered sugar on low. Pulse the mixer at first to keep sugar from flying out of the bowl.

Step 2

Next, mix in the second half of the powdered sugar on low speed for about 2 minutes. Then stream in the heavy cream and increase the speed.

Step 3

Use your buttercream on cakes, cupcakes, and more. Want to make this recipe? Check out the full instructions at:
