Spiced Cinnamon Molasses Frosting for Gingerbread Men

2 tablespoons cinnamon molasses
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1/2 unsalted butter, softened
2 cups granulated sugar flour
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
1-2 tablespoons milk (optional)

Follow these simple steps to make the Cinnamon Molasses Spice Glaze:

Beat the butter: Beat the butter in a mixing bowl until smooth and creamy. This will be the base of your frosting, so make sure it’s thin enough to blend easily.
Add the dry ingredients: Gradually add the icing sugar to the butter, whisking constantly until the mixture is light and well combined. This gives your frosting great taste and texture.
Add the flavors: Once the sugar is fully incorporated, it is time to add the spices. Sprinkle in the cinnamon, ground ginger and ground nutmeg and continue whisking until the spices are well dispersed into the mixture.
Adjust the Consistency: You can add milk to the cooler according to how you want the consistency. This will help make it a little thinner and easier to spread. Start with 1 tablespoon of milk and add more if necessary until you reach your desired consistency.
Flavor and Variation: Before decorating your gingerbread men, give them a cold test. Adjust seasoning or seasoning to taste, adding powdered sugar or spices if necessary.
Decorating Fun: Once your icing is ready, it’s time for the fun part: painting! Use a piping bag or small spatula to decorate your gingerbread men with circles, dots, or any other fun designs you want.
Tip for Extracting
Oil at Room Temperature: Make sure your oil is at room temperature before you start. This ensures it mixes well with the other ingredients, resulting in an even cooler result.
Sift the icing sugar: To prevent the icing from clumping, sift the icing sugar before adding the butter. This ensures it is safe and healthy.
Freeze to keep fresh: If you want hard jewelry to be very cold, place it in the refrigerator for 15-20 minutes before spraying.
