The perfectly pink frosting gets its color from cinnamon candies. I warmed some milk and let the candies sit in the milk before straining and adding it to the buttercream. I have seen some people try and pulverize these candies in the food processor, but they are pretty tough. Soaking in milk really brings out the cinnamon flavor and you don’t have to worry about grainy candy bits ruining the frosting. I added 1 small drop of gel food coloring just to brighten up the pink.
Until next time,
LOVE & CONFECTIONS!
