Creamy Maple Frosting

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by LARavenscroft

This is an old recipe that I found while cleaning out my recipe box. Not sure where I got it from, but it's really good on spice cake. Makes enough to frost a 9 x 13 cake.

The flavor was great--subtle maple flavor and pretty sweet. Mine came out more like a thick glaze, which would work great on doughnuts or cinnamon rolls (luckily that's what I wanted it for). I added extra powdered sugar to thicken it a little, but with the amount of syrup I think you'd need quite a bit more sugar to get a fluffy frosting consistency. A maple extract instead of syrup would help with that issue, if you have any.
