- In a bowl, sift the ground ancho chile, cayenne pepper, and cinnamon with the confectioners' sugar. Beat in the cream cheese and butter with an electric mixer on medium speed until the frosting is smooth; mix in the vanilla extract. Use to frost cupcakes or cakes.

I doubled the vanilla (I do in every recipe), but didn't change anything els..." See moree. For people worried about it being too spicy as written, don't fret. I can't handle spice at all, but had no problem with this frosting. Absolutely fantastic; a must try.

The flavor of this icing is fantastic and it really compliments the chili choc..." See moreolate cupcakes perfectly, though I do believe that this icing would be fantastic on a variety of cakes.
