This was a quick frosting that required little work. I did add some cream cheese because I just love cream cheese in my frosting. This recipe went great with banana bread.

This is a very easy recipe. I used 2 cups of confectioner's sugar. One batch was only enough for a single layer cake or a 9x13 cake. Double this recipe for a double layer cake. The frosting had a good flavor,mild and not over powering. You could easily substitute this frosting for any recipe using maple frosting. I would make this again.

Wow is this sweet! I used it to frost Baker's Dozen favorite Butter Cake Baker's Dozen favorite Butter Cake (which is fantastic, by the way). I made a single recipe and only had enough to fill the cake. I then made a triple recipe and had plenty to frost 2-layers. Thanks for posting Aroostook. Sue
