This was SO delicious! I'm glad I needed every drop of it for cupcakes otherwise I would have ended up eating what was left with a spoon! @Crystal - I bet this was divine on the chocolate bacon cupcakes!!

This frosting didn't have enough maple flavor for my liking. It was barely detectable, even though I added more maple syrup (grade B) than required. I think it would be better with maple extract. (We went to four stores looking for maple extract, but couldn't find any. I added vanilla extract and that enhanced the flavor. I'll order maple extract and try this recipe again.)

I was baking for a crowd where nut allergies may have been an issue so I omitted the nuts.
Very nice on a spice cake! I added an extra Tbsp of maple syrup as I love the flavor. Icing was nice and fluffy.

Fantastic on Chocolate Bacon Cupcakes. One recipe was more than enough to do 24 cupcakes.

One batch is perfect for a 9-in. double layer black walnut cake.
