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.


  1. Combine butter, salt, syrup, vanilla, and 1 cup of the sugar.
  2. Add milk and remaining sugar, alternately.
  3. Mix until smooth & creamy.

This frosting came great. I followed the recipe to a T and didn't require any additional maple extract. The maple flavor is subtle yet distinct (I used grade B maple syrup, the darker kind). The consistency is thick and creamy and pipes well. I will absolutely use this again in the future! It's simple and delicious.
