This recipe was inspired by Maple Frosting, which is hands down the best frosting I've ever made or tasted. Because of my daughter's allergies I had to modify it, and eventually got to enough variations to deserve a separate recipe. This version is thick, smooth, and shiny. As written this is lactose free, gluten free, egg free and nut free. Contains soy and corn and Crisco which is vegetable shortening but NOT certified gluten free. **Since everyone has different allergies, please substitute whatever you cannot eat or serve.** This will frost about a dozen regular sized muffins or cupcakes, double it to frost a cake.
- Mix powdered sugar and salt.
- Beat in shortening with hand mixer.
- Beat in corn syrup and lemon essence.
- Add milk 1 Tbs at a time and beat to desired consistency (mine usually takes 2 Tbs).
